Arsenic in Hunterdon County
Why is Hunterdon County at special risk for arsenic in well water?
Inorganic arsenic exists naturally at various levels in all geologic formations in the state. In some of these formations, arsenic is relatively stable and immobile despite being present at high concentrations. In other formations, the chemical and physical properties of the rock may enable the arsenic to become mobile, such as rocks formed from organic-rich, ancient lake beds in a group of geologic formations in the Piedmont Physiographic Province of the New Jersey. Arsenic may reach ground water from human activities as well. The primary use of arsenic, historically, has been as an ingredient in pesticides. Although arsenic is not considered to be highly mobile, certain factors, such as the use of fertilizers, can mobilize it and enable it to reach ground water. Thus, arsenic present in an aquifer may be due to natural formations, past use of arsenical pesticides or both.
