Portland, OR: (Reviewed by Pamela Johnston) The major goal of this report was to determine the regional distribution for arsenic in groundwater of the Willamette Basin.

Historical data, along with tests of 17 contemporary locations, were analyzed. Historically, groundwater arsenic research has been focused on the two principal inorganic arsenic species: arsenate [As(V)] and arsenite [As(III)]. Recently, organic arsenic species have garnered more attention due to their mobility, toxicity, and contemporary recognition of the ephemeral yet significant role they have in the global arsenic cycle.

A section on the [geochemistry of arsenic][] is provided in a [USGS report][] titled “Arsenic in ground water of the Willamette Basin, Oregon.”.

Author: Alan H. Welch,Kenneth G. Stollenwerk; Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media ISBN: Category: Science Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» Interest in arsenic in ground water has greatly increased in the past decade because of the increased awareness of human health effects and the costs of avoidance or treatment of ground water supplies used for consumption.

In its Willamette Basin Report, the Oregon High salinity and high arsenic concentrations are the two major natural water-quality problems in parts of the Willamette Basin. Ground water with high salinity is commonly encountered in the marine sedimentary rocks in the Coast and Cascade Range foothills and the valley margins adjacent to.

Arsenic-rich ground water may extend into the upper Kankakee River basin within Indiana, as suggested by high arsenic in surface water, sediment and biota (Fitzpatrick et al., ; Schmidt and Blanchard, ). ^ Arsenopyrite has been mentioned as a possible source of arsenic. Arsenic in drinking water is a worldwide problem.

Now a discovery by scientists at the University of Oregon could lead to a new way to remove the toxic chemical, making groundwater supplies safer. I was recently told that there is Arsenic in the Ground Water of the Willamette Basin, Oregon which includes areas like Sweet home, Creswell etc I did a bit of research on this arsenic concern, and found out.

that because of the Volcanic activity in the area, natural formation of arsenic is found in alot of deep wells in the Willamette.

Institute for Water and Watersheds Strand Agricultural Hall Oregon State University Corvallis, OR Phone: Fax: The Willamette Basin is Oregon's largest river basin. It contains nearly 70 percent of Oregon’s population, its most highly productive agricultural land, and significant habitat for anadromous fish populations.

The Willamette River and its tributaries make it possible to support today's population and generate hydropower. willsus1 Willamette Lowland basin-fill aquifers Arsenic 66 willsus1 Willamette Lowland basin-fill aquifers Perchloroethene (PCE) 61 1 First number is the percentage greater than picocuries per liter (proposed Maximum Contaminant Level), and second number is the.

Arsenic concentrations exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) current Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 50 mg/L (micrograms per liter) are widespread in ground water in the Willamette Basin.

The Oregon Water Resources Department and the U.S. Geological Survey began a cooperative study in the Willamette Basin in The current (?95) quality of shallow ground water (generally, Willamette Basin alluvium is described using results from two studies.

A Study-Unit Survey, or regional assessment of shallow groundwater quality in alluvium, was done from June through August During the Study-Unit Survey, data were collected from 70 domestic wells chosen using a random.

Abstract: This report presents ground-water data collected and compiled as part of a study of the ground-water resources of the Willamette River Basin, Oregon.

The report includes tabulated information and a location map for 1, field-located water wells and 6 springs, hydrographs showing water. USGS ground-water investigations are helping State and local agencies deal with rapid growth in the 4, square-mile upper Deschutes Basin, one of the fastest growing regions in Oregon.

Ground water must supply the water needs for all new development in this region because, for most uses, surface-water resources are fully appropriated.

Arsenic is also a developmental neurotoxin, a feature it shares with methylmercury. The groundwater in the Willamette Basin, especially Lane County, is highly contaminated with inorganic arsenic, mainly due to aquifer geology.
