Drinking shallow groundwater with naturally elevated concentrations of arsenic is causing widespread disease in many parts of South and Southeast Asia. In the Bengal Basin, growing reliance on deep (>150 m) groundwater has lowered exposure. In the most affected districts of Bangladesh, shallow groundwater concentrations average 100 to 370 μg L(-1), while deep groundwater is typically < 10 μg L(-1). Groundwater flow simulations have suggested that, even when deep pumping is restricted to… CONTINUE READING
