UWRL Researchers Develop Techniques to Identify Arsenic Contamination in Drinking Water

Environmental engineer researchers at the UWRL have developed a new genetic tool in identifying the bacteria that releases contaminating arsenic in water supplies.  Arsenic contaminates drinking water for millions of people worldwide and this microbial ecosystem research is the first step in understanding and reducing arsenic contamination in groundwater The team published their findings in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology journal on February 1.
