Arsenic occurs naturally in some water supplies through the erosion and chemical breakdown of rocks.
Arsenic occurs naturally in some water supplies through the erosional and chemical breakdown of rocks. It is colorless and odorless and detectable only in lab testing. The EPA has established a drinking water standard for arsenic because of the potential health risk of consuming arsenic in water. 

Boiling water actually concentrates arsenic, which is believed to cause some forms of cancer. Remediation of arsenic is relatively simple and there are multiple options.
Uranium is a colorless and odorless radioactive metal that is commonly found in well water in our area.
Uranium is a colorless and odorless radioactive metal that is commonly found in well water in our area. It is detectable only through laboratory analysis. Some geographic areas are more prone to naturally-occurring uranium and we can advise you as to whether or not your water is likely to contain uranium, which may bioaccumulate in bones and organs (liver and kidneys). Boiling of water will increase uranium concentration. Uranium is regulated in public water supplies by EPA drinking water standards.
