Summary

There are approximately 12,000 private wells in the Municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, USA, that supply drinking water to thousands of homeowners. The results presented in this paper are from a study conducted to understand the speciation and seasonal fluctuations of As in the groundwater of Anchorage. A total of eight private drinking water wells were sampled from May to October, 2007, to determine inorganic species of As (III/V) and other physiochemical parameters of the groundwater. Arsenic concentrations above Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drinking water standard of 10 μg/L had been previously measured in all of these eight wells by the Municipality of Anchorage. Seven of the wells draw water from glaciofluvial aquifers [...]
