Much like annual preventative health screenings, an annual well test is an important part of maintaining good health. Arsenic is a natural but toxic element that is found in well water throughout the watershed. Municipal government, local doctors, and the media play an important role in providing information to residents in areas at high risk for well water contaminants such as arsenic. Workshop participants will learn more about the health effects of arsenic, how arsenic enters the water supply and what tools are available to better inform residents on how to safeguard their drinking water through testing and treatment. Presenters include experts on the topic from Raritan Headwaters, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, NJDEP, and the Hunterdon County Division of Public Health Services.
