EXECUTIVE SUMMARY BACKGROUND In January 2006, some 4,000 drinking
water utilities across the United States, most of them small, groundwater-based,
and having little or no treatment infrastructure, will be required to treat their
source water to remove arsenic. The revised US. Environmental Protection
Agency (USEPA) Arsenic Rule Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) has been
promulgated at 10 ug/L. This level is still controversial, and accumulating health-
effects data has ...

BACKGROUND Arsenic is a metalloid or oxyanion found in both ground and
surface water sources. It occurs in both dissolved and colloidal/particulate forms.
In drinking water supplies, dissolved arsenic occurs as either arsenate, As(V), or
arsenite, As(III). In the pH range of drinking waters, the anionic arsenate (pKa1,
pKa2, pKa3 = 2.2, 7.0, 11.5, respectively) dominates as either a mono- or di-
valent oxyanion (H2AsO4– or HAsO42–) whereas arsenite, the reduced form, is a
nonionic ...

The first branch oE work to which we cill attention is the examination of wall-
papers and fabrics for arsenic. Unhappily the craze for art colours has helped to
continue the use of pigments and dyes which might otherwise have gone into
oblivion by this time. As it is, arsenic in some form or other is still much used, and
all fabrics and papers of a bright green colour are to be regarded with the
strongest suspicion. Some time ago Mr. A. W. Stokes, the analyst for Paddington,
found about one ...

ORGANIZATION The Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF), U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and the Association of California
Water Agencies (ACWA) formed the Arsenic Research Partnership because of
concerns about arsenic in drinking water. The partnership is committed to
supporting on-going efforts to assist the water industry in effectively implementing
the Arsenic Rule. The partnership has been the principal funding agency for the
AwwaRF 2661 research ...

2.2.3 Gaseous Hydride/Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (GHAA) (SM 3114 B,
ASTM 2972-93 B, SW-846 7062, EPA 1632) Description of GHAA The Gaseous
Hydride/Atomic Absorption Spectroscopic methods operate on the following
principal. Trivalent arsenic is converted to its volatile hydride (arsine) by reaction
with zinc and hydrochloric acid or sodium borohydride. The volatile hydrides are
swept into an argon-hydrogen flame or into a heated quartz cell positioned in the
optical ...

In addition, the EPA has not approved ASV as an acceptable analytical technique
for measuring arsenic concentrations in drinking water. Aqueous
Spectrophotometric Technique An aqueous spectrophotometric technique
currently being developed operates by forming an aqueous complex with
dissolved arsenic using alizarin red S sodium salt, followed by an absorbance
measurement on a spectrophotometer (Ahmed and Hassan, 2000). This is based
on the same principle that ...

An arsenic MCL of 10 /ig/L would impact 70% of the wells. Due to the lack of
treatment, no arsenic removal from the source water is currently realized, and
there are no current issues related to disposal of treatment residuals. There are
no alternate source waters available, and no significant hydraulic restrictions in
the system (PRVs, multiple zones, booster stations, etc.). There are currently no
concerns regarding corrosion in the distribution system, no DBP concerns, and
no master ...

account for various conventional determinants of school performance and
subjective well being such as socio-economic condition of the family, personal
attributes, schooling history and school attributes (including arsenic
contamination status of tube wells at secondary school). This is explored in

section first describes the ...
