EPA Information Statement
While your drinking water
meets EPAís standard for arsenic, it does contain low levels of arsenic. EPAís
stand balances the current understanding of arsenicís possible health effects
against the costs of removing arsenic from drinking water. EPA continues to
research the health effects of low levels of arsenic, which is a mineral known
to cause cancer in humans at high concentrations, and is linked to other health
effects such as skin damage and circulatory problems (40CFR 141.154 (b)(1)).
