Arsenic levels are often above drinking water standards in Arizona groundwater, at levels that may affect health. Private well owners are responsible for testing and treating they own water. This publication gives an overview of arsenic well water and discusses home water treatment options, including detailed descriptions of distillation, reverse osmosis, and iron filters to lower arsenic and other common water constituents in drinking water.
