Maine’s well water often contains naturally occurring arsenic, posing health risks upon prolonged exposure. Air & Water Quality (AWQ) is a leading expert in water treatment in Maine and recognizes the severity of this issue. Over the years AWQ has successfully treated arsenic in over 75 Blue Hill residences.
Consuming water with elevated arsenic over time can increase the risk of skin, bladder, and lung cancer, as well as impact the brain development of young children. AWQ emphasizes the importance of proactive water testing and treatment to mitigate these risks. More information on arsenic exposure and treatment can be found here and on AWQ’s website here.
