How safe is your water? MDIBL talks arsenic with Voice of Maine Radio

  • July 30, 2020

Residents of Maine and New Hampshire rely heavily on private wells for their drinking water, but how safe is that water? Few have their wells tested and some standard tests in ME do not include arsenic, which is a problem in New England coastal arsenic belt.

MDIBL Senior Staff Scientist, Jane Disney, Ph.D. and visiting scientist, Bruce Stanton, Ph.D., of Dartmouth University recently spoke with Voice of Maine radio host  Carol Higgins-Taylor to discuss the dangers of arsenic and what people can do about them.
