Drinking Water Arsenic Settlement (US)

Settlement is announced today (fines) with the US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian Affairs for violation of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act at the Keams Canyon Public Water Supply system.

Here is the USEPA press release.

The Keams Canyon public water supply system, located on the Hopi Reservation, is owned and operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and serves a population of approximately 2,000 people. The USEPA found the BIA exceeded drinking water standards for arsenic and failed to monitor for arsenic and disinfection compounds. The system is now fully compliant with these requirements.
