Hazard emphasized – Arsenic – Information by: University of Arizona Superfund Research Program

Contaminated water education:
Hazard emphasized: Arsenic.Arsenic has long been known as a poison. Whether arsenic has an effect on health depends on the route, dose (how much), and duration (how long) of exposure.
The theme of the University of Arizona Superfund Research Program (UA SRP) is “Hazardous Waste Risk and Remediation in the Southwest.” Our goals are to address the health effects of contaminants of concern in the U.S. Southwest (and Mexico border), and to characterize, contain, and re-mediate hazardous waste sites.
