More arsenic contamination uncovered in lakes area
Scientists confirmed more drinking water wells in the lakes area contain levels of arsenic exceeding federal health limits.
An updated map released in early June by AW Research Labs in Brainerd reveals wells on Round Lake, North Long Lake, Pelican Lake and Campbell Lake contain arsenic in excess of 10 parts per billion (ppb). Approximately 27 samples fell between 10 ppb and 50 ppb out of 83 tested, according to laboratory director Sara Ahlers.
