The North Dakota Arsenic Trioxide site consists of twenty townships in the Richland, Ransom, and Sargent counties in southeastern North Dakota. Ground water use includes residential consumption, irrigation, and livestock watering. The contamination, limited to ground water, appears to have two sources; naturally occurring arsenic contained in shales native to the area; and an estimated 330,000 pounds of arsenic-laced bait used to control grasshopper infestations in the 1930s and 1940s. The primary contaminant of concern is arsenic trioxide.
