Arsenic Water Testing CT

Your water looks, smells and tastes fine.

So why do you need to test your CT water for arsenic?

It is hard to believe that water that looks, smells and tastes fine may not be safe to drink. But the truth some wells in Connecticut have water that is high in arsenic.

Protect your family. Test your well water for arsenic every 3 to 5 years.

Why is arsenic in water bad? People who drink water with too much arsenic for many years are more likely to develop cancer. Arsenic can cause skin, bladder and lung cancers. In addition it may cause low birthweight and affect brain development in babies if pregnant women drink Connecticut water with too much arsenic in it.

Arsenic can also affect brain development in young children. Other problems that may occur from drinking water with very high arsenic levels include: stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet and changes in skin.

Your chance of having any of these health issues depends on:

  • how much arsenic is in your water
  • how much water you drink
  • how long you have been drinking the water
