Arsenic contamination of groundwater continues to threaten access to safe drinking water for California’s most vulnerable small, socioeconomically disadvantaged communities. How does this disparity persist in California, the wealthiest state in the US and one of the world’s largest economies? In this talk, I will first introduce challenges to safe drinking water facing many small, low-income communities in the US. Then I will discuss field testing a novel treatment technology in a small, low-income community in California. Finally, I will offer (some) explanation for why disparities in access to safe drinking water persist in small, low-income communities in California.
