USGS study signals need for well owners to test, protect water

A report released by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) showing that one in five private wells in Pennsylvania faces elevated arsenic levels, offered powerful incentive to test and ensure treatment, according to the Water Quality Assn (WQA).

According to USGS, “Eight percent of more than 5,000 wells tested across Pennsylvania contain groundwater with levels of arsenic at or above federal standards set for public drinking water, while an additional 12% — though not exceeding standards — show elevated levels,” said Dave Haataja, executive director of WQA.
