Arsenic in Groundwater

Arsenic in groundwater – a world problem

Symposium organised by IAH’s Dutch Chapter and the Netherlands’ Hydrological Society, 29 November 2006, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Arsenic contamination of groundwater has occurred in various parts of the world, most notably the Ganges Delta of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India, causing serious arsenic poisoning amongst large numbers of people. It is a natural occurring high concentration of arsenic in deeper levels of groundwater, which became a high-profile problem in recent years due to the use of deep tube wells for water supply in the Ganges Delta. Parts of Thailand, Taiwan, Argentina, Chile and China have also been affected.
