Arsenic (As) occurs naturally in many aquifer systems and when present in drinking water is associated with many health effects. The USEPA recently lowered the As maximum contaminant level (MCL) from 50 mg L-1 to 10 mg L-1 (0.13 mM). Public water supplies that fail to meet the As MCL by early 2006 must develop a plan for compliance. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) has sent As rule change letters to 36 communities. Installing new treatment systems or drilling new wells may impose an economic hardship on small water systems. Although private wells are unregulated, arsenic is of concern to many private well owners because of health concerns.
