    Millions of people worldwide consume water contaminated with levels of arsenic that exceed those recommended by the World Health Organization. This could cause health problems, such as arsenic poisoning, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Microbes in groundwater release arsenic from sediments, and organic matter helps fuel this reaction.   Arsenic contamination of natural waters has become an issue of growing concern, particularly in Southeast Asia, to the extent that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared groundwater contamination on the Bengal delta the largest mass poisoning of a population in history. 7 Because much of southern Nepal lies within the same Ganges drainage. This book presents a socio-economic analysis of the issues linking technological innovation in providing arsenic-safe drinking water in rural areas. It presents concrete field based experiences of experiments and case studies depicting the plight and sufferings of people due to failed technological.

Arsenic contamination of groundwater affects about million people worldwide. Countries with elevated groundwater arsenic concentrations include Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Cambodia, Canada, Ghana, Hungary, India, Laos, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Poland, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and the United : Hardcover.

About this book Provides a viable reference, describing the state-of-knowledge on sources of arsenic contamination in ground water, which affects about million people worldwide.?It is a core reference source.

(APADE, ). Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment [M. Manzurul Hassan] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Arsenic-contaminated groundwater is considered one of the world’s largest environmental health crisesCited by: 4.

Arsenic-contaminated groundwater is considered one of the world’s largest environmental health crises, as more than million people in more than one-third of countries worldwide are at risk of groundwater arsenic poisoning. This book addresses how arsenic in groundwater impacts human health by using the frameworks of natural sciences.

Arsenic-contaminated groundwater is considered one of the world’s largest environmental health crises, as more than million people in more than one-third of countries worldwide are at risk of groundwater arsenic poisoning.

This book addresses how arsenic in groundwater impacts human health by. The main objective of this chapter is to introduce the book; in addition, explanations of the occurrence and causes of arsenic in groundwater, the forms of arsenic present, and their adverse impact on human health through drinking water and the food chain are elaborated, along with arsenic chemistry and the forms of arsenic found in contaminated groundwater.

Part one of the book describes the issue of arsenic contamination in ground water and river basins, including its source and distribution in specific locations in India. Part two explains the routes of exposure to environmental arsenic, its transport in aquatic ecosystems, and the health risks linked to arsenic exposure in food and the environment.

The ground-water contamination also extends away from the landfill in the direction of ground-water flow, forming a leachate plume that can result in the release of naturally occurring arsenic.

This fact sheet describes results of studies by the U.S. Geological Survey at. This high concentration of arsenic in the groundwater clearly justifies the high soil arsenic contamination.

Many arsenic-contaminated sites are also contaminated with other heavy metals namely, Cu, Zn, and Ni (Chirenje et al., ) though which is not prevalent in our study.

So it's essential to focus on evaluation of metal addition on arsenic distribution which will shed more light on remediation of arsenic contaminated by: Arsenic occurs naturally as a trace component in many rocks and sediments.

Whether the arsenic is released from these geologic sources into groundwater depends on the chemical form of the arsenic, the geochemical conditions in the aquifer, and the biogeochemical processes that occur.

Provides a viable reference, describing the state-of-knowledge on sources of arsenic contamination in ground water, which affects about million people contributions from world-renowned experts in the field, this book explores developments in the transport kinetics, detection, measurement, seasonal cycling, accumulation, geochemistry, removal, and toxicology of arsenic.

Book Description. Providing an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites.

In-Situ Remediation of Arsenic-Contaminated Sites - CRC Press Book Providing an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites.

Arsenic Pollution summarizes the most current research on the distribution and causes of arsenic pollution, its impact on health and agriculture, and solutions by way of water supply, treatment, and water resource management.

Provides the first global and interdisciplinary account of arsenic pollution occurrences Integrates geochemistry, hydrology, agriculture, and water supply and treatment. Arsenic contamination in ground water of West Bengal in the range of mg/l, occurs in isolated patches, spreading over 79 blocks in - eight districts of the state.

At present about lakh people (% of the total population of theFile Size: 75KB. Introduction. Arsenic in groundwater is now a common phenomenon in many countries.

The excess amount of arsenic in drinking water has been reported from various parts of the world, such as Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Hungary, India, Mexico, Nepal, Taiwan, and by: 4. Water pollution is a major problem faced by modern societies.

Industrial and domestic wastes are dumped into water bodies making them unsuitable for human utilization. Most of the city dwellers in India draw underground water for domestic.

Arsenic-contaminated groundwater is considered one of the world’s largest environmental health crises, as more than million people in more than one-third of countries worldwide are at risk of groundwater arsenic poisoning.
