Research was conducted in Liberty Bay, an embayment within Puget Sound, where 70% of the population (∼10,) uses septic systems. Sampling included collection of groundwater and surface water with grab samples and the use of polar organic chemical integrative samplers (POCIS). The Safe Drinking Water Act, as amended in , requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to review current drinking-water standards for arsenic, propose a maximum contaminant level for arsenic by January 1, , and issue a final regulation by January,
