    Arsenic is naturally occurring in our environment and can be found in everything from water to the air to soil to plants. Because arsenic is found in our environment and can be a by-product both industrial and agricultural practices, it can enter drinking water through the form of runoff. Arsenic can also find its way into drinking water through the ground. The EPA has set standards for the maximum acceptable level of arsenic in drinking water. Currently, 10 parts per billion is the maximum contaminant level and water that complies with this standard is deemed safe.
