Arsenic in borewell water

This is one ofthe major issues of borewell water in many areas around the world. This can be dissolved in water and has no odor or taste, thus it is difficult for you to know about its presence in water unless the water is tested. So if you are about to use borewell water for consumption, then testing it for arsenic is important.

Sometimes borewell water smells like rotten egg due to being contaminated by sulfur compounds which cause Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S)  gas to form in the water. This gas creates extremely bad odor , just like the smell of rotten egg, in water. In one of our previous posts, you can find more details about the harmful effect of this gas in drinking water and how it can be removed.

Muddy water problem

When the water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particles’ presence in it, the water becomes turbid. dirt and mud in water can cause high level of turbidity and thus, the water becomes unsafe to drink.

Iron in borewell water

Iron is spotted almost everywhere on the surface of the earth. This is true that human body needs iron to function accurately. But iron, like many substances, is toxic at high dosages. Drinking iron contaminated borewell water for long can cause severe health problems. The taste of water becomes unpleasant. Using such water for cooking, dishwashing, washing clothes and many other household works should also be avoided, because iron can clog the home appliances, make the sinks,  tubs, pipes stained, and even affect food and beverages.
