Role of Quaternary stratigraphy on arsenic-contaminated groundwater from parts of Barak Valley, Assam, North-East India. Babar Ali Shah, Environ Earth Sciences (2012) v.66, pp.2491-2501.
DOI 10.1007/s12665-011-1472-3

Abstract: Groundwater arsenic survey in Cachar and Karimganj districts of Barak Valley, Assam shows that people in these two districts are drinking arsenic-contaminated (max. 350 μg/l) groundwater. 66% of tubewells in these two districts have arsenic concentrations
above the WHO guideline value of 10 μg/l and 26% tubewells have arsenic above 50 μg/l, the Indian standards for arsenic in drinking water. 90% of installed tubewells in these two districts are shallow depth (14-40 m). Shallow tubewells were installed in Holocene Newer Alluvium aquifers are characterised by grey to black coloured fine grained organic rich argillaceous sediments and are mostly
arsenic contamination in groundwater. Plio-Pleistocene Older Alluvium aquifers composed of shale, ferruginous sandstone, mottle clay, pebble and boulder beds, which at higher location or with thin cover of Newer Alluvium sediments are safe in arsenic contamination in groundwater. 91% of tubewell water samples show significantly higher concentrations of iron beyond its permissible limit of 1 mg/l. The iron content in these two districts varies from 0.5 to as much as 48 mg/l. Most of the arsenic contaminated villages of Cachar
and Karimganj districts are located in entrenched channels and flood plains of Newer Alluvium sediments in Barak-Surma-Langai Rivers system. However, deeper tubewells (>60 m) in Plio-Pleistocene Older Alluvium aquifers would be a better option for arsenic-safe groundwater. The arsenic in groundwater is getting released from associated Holocene sediments, which were likely deposited from
the surrounding Tertiary Barail hill range.
The uncertainties and inequalities of groundwater use in Bangladesh. 2012. Rammelt CF. In: Conservation in a Crowded World: Case studies from the Asia-Pacific, J Merson, R Cooney, P Brown (ed.), p. 147-166, Sydney: UNSW Press

Abstract: This chapter reflects on the notion of sustainable use of natural resources in the context of water management in Bangladesh. Polluted and irregular surface water resources have prompted a national shift to groundwater for both agricultural and domestic sectors in the 1960s and 1980s, respectively. About a decade ago, natural occurring arsenic was detected in the shallow groundwater supplies, putting at risk drinking water and food security for an estimated 20-60 million people. Although progress is extremely slow, the sinking of deep groundwater tube-wells seems to be the most popular response. The strategy is not without risk: this chapter explores how a range of geological, technological, political, institutional and cultural factors are likely to affect continued and equitable access to adequate water resources.

Association between arsenic exposure from drinking water and plasma levels of cardiovascular markers. 2012.
Wu F, Jasmine F, Kibriya MG, Liu ML, Wojcik O, Parvez F, et al.  Am. J. Epidemiol. 175(12):1252-1261.

Abstract:  The authors conducted a cross-sectional study to assess the relation between arsenic exposure from drinking water and plasma levels of markers of systemic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction (matrix metalloproteinase-9, myeloperoxidase, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, soluble E-selectin, soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), and soluble vascular adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1)) using baseline data from 668 participants (age, > 30 years) in the Health Effects of Arsenic Longitudinal Study in Bangladesh (2007-2008). Both well water arsenic and urinary arsenic were positively associated with plasma levels of soluble VCAM-1. For every 1-unit increase in log-transformed well water arsenic (ln mu g/L) and urinary arsenic (ln mu g/g creatinine), plasma soluble VCAM-1 was 1.02 (95% confidence interval: 1.01, 1.03) and 1.04 (95% confidence interval: 1.01, 1.07) times greater, respectively. There was a significant interaction between arsenic exposure and higher body mass index, such that the increased levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 and soluble VCAM-1 associated with arsenic exposure were stronger among people with higher body mass index. The findings indicate an effect of chronic arsenic exposure from drinking water on vascular inflammation and endothelial dysfunction that could be modified by body mass index and also suggest a potential mechanism underlying the association between arsenic exposure and cardiovascular disease.
Pre- and Postnatal
Arsenic Exposure and Body Size to 2 Years of Age: A Cohort Study in Rural Bangladesh. 2012. Saha KK, Engstrom A, Hamadani JD, Tofail F, Rasmussen KM and M Vahter.  Environ.
Health Perspect.  120(8):1208-1214.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: Exposure to arsenic via drinking water has been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes and infant morbidity and mortality. Little is known, however, about the effects of arsenic on child growth. OBJECTIVE: We assessed potential effects of early-life arsenic exposure on weight and length of children from birth to 2 years of age. METHODS: We followed 2,372 infants born in a population-based intervention trial in rural Bangladesh. Exposure was assessed by arsenic concentrations in urine (U-As) of mothers (gestational weeks 8 and 30) and children (18 months old). Child anthropometry was measured monthly in the first year and quarterly in the second. Linear regression models were used to examine associations of U-As (by quintiles) with child weight and length, adjusted for age, maternal body mass index, socioeconomic status, and sex (or stratified by sex). RESULTS: Median (10th-90th percentiles) U-As concentrations were about 80 (25-400) mu g/L in the mothers and 34 (12-159) mu g/L in the children. Inverse associations of maternal U-As with child's attained weight and length at 3-24 months were markedly attenuated after adjustment. However, associations of U-As at 18 months with weight and length at 18-24 months were more robust, particularly in girls. Compared with girls in the first quintile of U-As (< 16 mu g/L), those in the fourth quintile (26-46 mu g/L) were almost 300 g lighter and 0.7 cm shorter, and had adjusted odds ratios (95% confidence interval) for underweight and stunting of 1.57 (1.02-2.40) and 1.58 (1.05-2.37), respectively, at 21 months. CONCLUSIONS: Postnatal arsenic exposure was associated with lower body weight and length among girls, but not boys.

health crisis in peri-urban Moyna and Ardebok villages, West Bengal, India:
an exposure assessment study.  2012.  Maity JP, Nath B, Kar S, Chen CY, Banerjee S,
Jean JS et al.  Environ.
Geochem. Hlth.  34(5):563-574.

Abstract: Drinking of arsenic (As)-contaminated groundwater has adverse effects on health of millions of people worldwide. This study aimed to determine the degree of severity of As exposure from drinking water in peri-urban Moyna and Ardebok villages, West Bengal, India. Arsenic concentrations in hair, nail and urine samp les of the individuals were determined. Arsenical dermatosis, keratosis and melanosis were investigated through medical evaluation. We have evaluated the association between As exposure from drinking water, and keratosis and melanosis outcomes. The results showed that 82.7 % of the sampled tube wells contain As concentrations above 10 mu g/L, while 57.7 % contain As concentrations above 50 mu g/L. The hair, nail and urine As concentrations were positively correlated with As concentrations in drinking water. In our study population, we observed a strong association between As concentrations ranging 51-99 mu g/L and keratosis and melanosis outcomes, although the probability decreases at higher concentration ranges perhaps due to switching away from the use of As-contaminated tube wells for drinking and cooking purposes. High As concentrations in hair, nail and urine were observed to be associated with the age of the study population. The level of As concentrations in hair, nail and urine samples of the study population indicated the degree of severity of As exposure in the study region.

C-14 dating of deep
groundwater in the Bengal Aquifer System, Bangladesh: Implications for aquifer
anisotropy, recharge sources and sustainability. 2012. Hoque MA and WG Burgess.  J.
Hydrol.  444:209-220.

Abstract: Environmental isotopes and C-14 dating were applied to estimate ages and recharge sources of deep groundwater (>= 150 m bgl) in south-east Bangladesh. With one exception, deep groundwater is shown to have been recharged more recently than 10 Ka (range 3-9 Ka, mean 7.6 Ka), under climatic conditions indicated by delta O-18 and delta H-2 as similar to the present day. Groundwater age distributions have been used to infer the scale of aquifer hydraulic anisotropy. 2D groundwater flow modelling is able to reproduce the observed vertical profiles of groundwater age, as determined at two locations, when the aquifer is assigned a permeability anisotropy (K-x/K-z) of at least 10(3). Under these conditions, deep groundwater originates as recharge in the hill regions at the eastern boundary of the basin. Recharge rates estimated from the groundwater ages are close to an estimate of the current rate of deep groundwater abstraction. Cautious development and careful monitoring are therefore necessary, as excessive deep groundwater pumping could draw dissolved arsenic from the shallow levels of the Bengal Aquifer System (BAS) and contaminate the deep groundwater resource.
contrast between brown and grey sand aquifers in shallow depth of Bengal Basin:
Consequences for sustainable drinking water supply. 2012. Biswas A, Nath B,
Bhattacharya P, Haider D, Kundu AK, Mandal U et al.  Sci. Tot. Env.  431:402-412.

Abstract: Delineation of safe aquifer(s) that can be targeted by cheap drilling technology for tubewell (TW) installation becomes highly imperative to ensure access to safe and sustainable drinking water sources for the arsenic (As) affected population in Bengal Basin. This study investigates the potentiality of brown sand aquifers (BSA) as a safe drinking water source by characterizing its hydrogeochemical contrast to grey sand aquifers (GSA) within shallow depth (<70 m) over an area of 100 km(2) in Chakdaha Block of Nadia district, West Bengal, India. The results indicate that despite close similarity in major ion composition, the redox condition is markedly different in groundwater of the two studied aquifers. The redox condition in the BSA is delineated to be Mn oxy-hydroxide reducing, not sufficiently lowered for As mobilization into groundwater. In contrast, the enrichments of NH4+, PO43-, Fe and As along with lower Eh in groundwater of GSA reflect reductive dis-solution of Fe oxy-hydroxide coupled to microbially mediated oxidation of organic matter as the prevailing redox process causing As mobilization into groundwater of this aquifer type. In some portions of GSA the redox status even has reached to the stage of SO42- reduction, which to some extent might sequester dissolved As from groundwater by co-precipitation with authigenic pyrite. Despite having low concentration of As in groundwater of the BSA the concentration of Mn often exceeds the drinking water guidelines, which warrants rigorous assessment of attendant health risk for Mn prior to considering mass scale exploitation of the BSA for possible sustainable drinking water supply.
The palaeosol model
of arsenic pollution of groundwater tested along a 32 km traverse across West
Bengal, India.  2012.  Hoque MA, McArthur JM, and PK Sikdar.  Sci. Tot. Env.  431:157-165.  
Abstract: The distribution of As-pollution in groundwater of the deltaic aquifers of south-eastern Asiamay be controlled by the subsurface distribution of palaeo-channel sediments (As-polluted groundwaters) and palaeo-interfluvial sediments (As-free groundwaters). To test this idea, termed the palaeosol model of As-pollution, we drilled 10 sites, analysed groundwater from 249 shallow wells (screened < 107 mbgl), field-tested another 149 for As, and used colour as a guide to the presence or absence of As-pollution in a further 531 wells. Our work was conducted along a 32-km traverse running W to E across southern West Bengal, India. At seven drill sites we logged a palaeo-interfluvial sequence, which occurs as three distinct units that together occupy 20 km of the traverse. These palaeo-interfluvial sequences yield As-free groundwaters from brown sands at depth < 100 m. The palaeo-interfluvial sequences are separated by two deep palaeo-channels, which were logged at 3 sites. The palaeo-channel deposits host As-polluted groundwater in grey sands. Our findings confirm the predictions of the palaeosol model of As-pollution. We show again that well-colour can be used both to successfully predict the degree of As-pollution in groundwater, and to locate regions of buried palaeo-interfluve that will yield As-free groundwater for the foreseeable future.
Organic carbon
mobilization in a Bangladesh aquifer explained by seasonal monsoon-driven storativity changes.  2012.  Planer-Friedrich
B, Hartig C, Lissner H, Steinborn J, Suss E Hassan MQ et al.  Appl. Geochem.  27(12):2324-2334.  

Currently, the most widely accepted hypothesis to explain high As concentrations in Bangladesh ground-waters is that dissolved organic C (DOC) reduces solid Fe (hydr)oxides and mobilizes sorbed arsenate. The nature of the DOC and its release mechanism are still controversial. Based on weekly to biweekly sampling over the course of one monsoon cycle at six monitoring wells of different depths, it is proposed that storativity changes drive natural DOC release from clay-peat layers to the adjacent aquifers. With a decrease in hydraulic heads during the dry season, total mineralization and DOC concentrations increased. With the onset of the rainy season and an increase in hydraulic heads, release of clay-peat derived components stopped and vertical water displacement due to groundwater recharge from rainwater occurred, causing aquifer flushing and a decrease in total mineralization and DOC concentrations. Total As and DOC concentrations correlated over depth. However, at the depth of maximum concentrations, the As peak was observed during the rainy season. At present, the reason for this inverse seasonal trend between As and DOC is unclear. Higher mineralization or DOC concentrations could lead to increased As sorption or the increased arsenite release is a time-lag abiotic or microbial response to the DOC peak. The vulnerability of the Pleistocene aquifer towards increased As concentrations was found to be much higher than previously assumed. Though sorption capacities were determined to be higher than in the Holocene aquifer, probably due to intact Fe (hydr) oxides, long-term continuous As input from overlying clay and peat layers by the proposed seasonal storativity changes has led to increased aqueous As concentrations of 85 mu g/L, considerably higher than drinking water standards. Until now, aquifer and especially aquitard and aquiclude hydraulics have not been considered sufficiently when attempting to explain As mobilization in Bangladesh.  

Technological options
for the removal of arsenic with special reference to South East Asia. 2012.  Jain CK and RD Singh. J.
Environ.  Manage.  107:1-18.

Abstract:  Arsenic contamination in ground water, used for drinking purpose, has been envisaged as a problem of global concern. However, arsenic contamination of ground water in parts of South East Asia is assuming greater proportions and posing a serious threat to the health of millions of people. A variety of treatment technologies based on oxidation, co-precipitation, adsorption, ion exchange and membrane process are available for the removal of arsenic from ground water. However, question remains regarding the efficiency and applicability/appropriateness of the technologies, particularly because of low influent arsenic concentration and differences in source water composition. Some of these methods are quite simple, but the disadvantage associated with them is that they produce large amounts of toxic sludge, which needs further treatment before disposal into the environment. Besides, the system must be economically viable and socially acceptable. In this paper an attempt has been made to review and update the recent advances made in the technological development in arsenic removal technologies to explore the potential of those advances to address the problem of arsenic contamination in South East Asia.
Evaluation of an
Arsenic Test Kit for Rapid Well Screening in Bangladesh.  2012.  George
CM, Zheng Y, Graziano JH, Bin Rasul S, Hossain Z, Mey JL and A van Geen.  Environ.
Sci. Technol.  46(20):11213-11219.

Abstract:  Exposure to arsenic in groundwater via drinking remains unabated for millions of villagers in Bangladesh. Since a blanket testing campaign using test kits almost a decade ago, millions of new wells have been installed but not tested; thus affordable testing is needed. The performance of the Arsenic Econo-Quick (EQ.) kit was evaluated by blindly testing 123 wells in Bangladeshand comparing with laboratory measurements; 65 wells were tested twice. A subset of the same 123 wells was also tested using the Hach EZ kit in the field and the Digital Arsenator in the laboratory in Bangladesh. The EQ kit correctly determined the status of 110 (89%) and 113 (92%) out of 123 wells relative to the WHO guideline (10 mu g/L) and the Bangladeshstandard (SO mu g/L), respectively. Relative to the WHO guideline, all misclassifications were underestimates for wells containing between >10 and 27 mu g/L As. Relative to the BangladeshAs standard, over- and underestimates were evenly distributed. Given its short reaction time of 10 min relative to the Hach EZ and its lower cost compared to the Arsenator, the EQ kit appears to have several advantages for well testing in Bangladeshand elsewhere.
Digital analysis
technique for uncertainty reduction in colorimetric arsenic detection method.  2012.  Perez MEC and FM Francisca. J. Environ.
Sci. Heal. A.  48(2):191-196.  

Abstract: This article proposes an alternative to increase the reliability and reproducibility of a colorimetric method to measure arsenic (As) concentrations. The method of analysis developed incorporates a digital analysis technique to eliminate the operator dependence of results, and As concentrations are quantitatively determined from digital levels computed from photographs of the colorimetric reaction that emerges during the test. This technique allows the sensitivity of the detection to be increased at low concentration ranges, which is of fundamental importance for the detection of As given the current acceptable limit for drinking water. The results obtained show a very good correlation between As concentrations determined by means of analytical laboratory techniques and the method proposed in this research.

The Role of
Irrigation Techniques in Arsenic Bioaccumulation in Rice (Oryza sativa L.).
2012.  Spanu A, Daga
L, Orlandoni AM and G Sanna. Environ. Sci. Technol.  46(15):8333-8340.

Abstract:  The bioaccumulation of arsenic compounds in rice is of great concern worldwide because rice is the staple food for billions of people and arsenic is one of the most toxic and carcinogenic elements at even trace amounts. The uptake of arsenic compounds in rice comes mainly from its interaction with system soil/water in the reducing conditions typical of paddy fields and is influenced by the irrigation used. We demonstrate that the use of sprinkler irrigation produces rice kernels with a concentration of total arsenic about fifty times lower when compared to rice grown under continuous flooding irrigation. The average total amount of arsenic, measured by a fully validated ICP-MS method, in 37 rice grain genotypes grown with sprinkler irrigation was 2.8 +/- 2.5 mu g kg(-1), whereas the average amount measured in the same genotypes grown under identical conditions, but using continuous flooding irrigation was 163 +/- 23 mu g kg(-1). In addition, we find that the average concentration of total arsenic in rice grains cultivated under sprinkler irrigation is close to the total arsenic concentration found in irrigation waters. Our results suggest that, in our experimental conditions, the natural bioaccumulation of this element in rice grains may be completely circumvented by adopting an appropriate irrigation technique.  
Arsenic Contamination
in Soil-Water-Plant (Rice, Oryza sativa L.) Continuum in Central and
Sub-mountainous Punjab, India.  2012.  Sidhu
SS, Brar JS, Biswas A, Banger K, and GS Saroa.  Bull. Environ. Contam. Toxicol.:
In the present study, Arsenic (As) concentrations in underground water, soil, and plants (rice) and their inter-relationships in central and sub-mountainous Punjab, India were studied. Approximately, 32 % of the tubewell water samples had As concentrations greater than the maximum permissible limit (10 mu g As L-1) set by the World Health Organization (WHO) whereas in hand pump waters, As concentrations were within the safe range (i.e. < 10 mu g As L-1). As concentrations in tubewell waters were significantly correlated with As concentrations in surface soil (r = 0.57; P < 0.05) and plant samples (r = 0.27-0.82; P < 0.05) in central and sub-mountainous Punjab. The estimated daily intake of As through human consumption in rural and urban population was 0.016 and 0.012 mu g day(-1) kg(-1) body weight respectively.  

Quality of Life and
Mental Health Status of Arsenic-affected Patients in a Bangladeshi Population.  2012.  Syed EH, Poudel KC, Sakisaka K, Yasuoka J,
Ahsan H and M Jimba.  J. Health Popul. Nutr.  30(3):262-269.

Abstract:  Contamination of groundwater by inorganic arsenic is one of the major public-health problems in Bangladesh. This cross-sectional study was conducted (a) to evaluate the quality of life (QOL) and mental health status of arsenic-affected patients and (b) to identify the factors associated with the QOL. Of 1,456 individuals, 521 (35.78%) were selected as case and control participants, using a systematic random-sampling method. The selection criteria for cases (n=259) included presence of at least one of the following: melanosis, leucomelanosis on at least 10% of the body, or keratosis on the hands or feet. Control (non-patient) participants (n=262) were selected from the same villages by matching age (+/- 5 years) and gender. The Bangladeshi version of the WHOQOL-BREF was used for assessing the QOL, and the self-reporting questionnaire (SRQ) was used for assessing the general mental health status. Data were analyzed using Student's t-test and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA), and the WHOQOL-BREF and SRQ scores between the patients and the non-patients were compared. The mean scores of QOL were significantly lower in the patients than those in the non-patients of both the sexes. Moreover, the mental health status of the arsenic-affected patients (mean score for males=8.4 and females=10.3) showed greater disturbances than those of the non-patients (mean score for males=5.2 and females=6.1) of both the sexes. The results of multiple regression analysis revealed that the factors potentially contributing to the lower QOL scores included: being an arsenic-affected patient, having lower age, and having lower annual income. Based on the findings, it is concluded that the QOL and mental health status of the arsenic-affected patients were significantly lower than those of the non-patients in Bangladesh. Appropriate interventions are necessary to improve the well-being of the patients.

    Jan Gregor,

    Abstract: "The changing forms and concentrations of arsenic through aluminium-based coagulation treatment processes were tracked forthree drinking-water treatment plants. This has provided direct evidenceof where and how arsenic is removed. In general, soluble As(V) is convertedto particulate As(V) by adsorption during rapid mixing, and is removed alongwith naturally-occurring particulate arsenic predominantly by clarification. Soluble As(III) tracks through the treatment processes and is converted tosoluble As(V) during final chlorination. The ability of a water treatmentprocess to achieve the maximum acceptable concentration for arsenic in drinkingwater is dependent on the concentration of As(III) in the source water."

    Abstract: The current phases used for the disposal of iron and arsenical wastes, jarosite and scorodite, are examined from a thermodynamic viewpoint using critically assessed data. For scorodite,it is demonstrated that the differences in the solubility reported in theliterature are due to starting phases of differing crystallinity. Contour plots of solubility vs pH and activity are presented for both scorodite and jarosite and show that the minimum solubility is achieved for pH 4-7. However, neither phase is stable towards transformation to goethite withscorodite only stable below pH 4 and jarosite below pH 7 The practicalitiesand implications of the disposal of these phasesis discussed and recommendations for future disposal options are made.

    Welham, N.J., Malatt, K.A., Vukcevic, S.,
    Hydrometallurgy, 57(3):209-223, October (2000).

    Abstract: The speciation in solution of a number of metallurgically importantiron-bearing systems are calculated from critically reviewed data. In acidicsolution, Fe2+ and Fe3+ are the predominantiron species, although ferric ion hydrolyses to Fe(OH)(2)(+) above pH 2. For sulphate and arsenate, HSO4- and H3AsO4 predominate up to pH similar to 2 where deprotonation occurs and sulphateand dihydrogen arsenate ions become predominant. For arsenite, the major species is H3AsO3 for all acidic pH. In ferric systems where complexinganions are present, the situation is somewhat different, although all systemsare substantially dependent upon the concentrationof the anions. In the presence of arsenate and sulphate, ferric ion readilycomplexes to form charged anions, arsenate complexesbeing more favourable than sulphate in mixed solutions. Chloride playsonly a minor role with complexation only occurring at concentrations close to unity. The importance of the solution speciationis discussed with reference to both leaching of iron minerals and in oxidative leaching using ferric ions.
