About Arsenic

Arsenic is a naturally occurring element found in soil and bedrock throughout Wisconsin. Under certain conditions, arsenic can be released into ground water and enter water wells. Long-Term exposure to arsenic in drinking water is known to increase risks of skin, bladder, lung, liver, colon, and kidney cancer. Other health effects may include blood vessel damage, high blood pressure, nerve damage, anemia, stomach upsets, diabetes, and skin changes.
