Arsenic and Groundwater Quality Tests


This study was designed to investigate and monitor the level of arsenic in drinking water of western Chitwan Valley. In 2004, samples were collected from 1,445 drinking water sources used by over 2,500 households living in the study area and tested its arsenic content. The result of this study was shared with the local communities and the drinking water sources that had arsenic content higher than the levels recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) were dismantled and replaced by new sources.
