With the lowering of the arsenic levels by the EPA, smaller utilities face a challenge to efficiently and cost-effectively monitor arsenic concentration. This project sought to develop a fast, safe easy-to-use and relatively inexpensive field method for that purpose as existing and newly introduced kits were found lacking in various ways. The new field method developed by this project is based on a standard hydride generation protocol. While field testing did not prove as accurate as laboratory tests it still has some value. Discussed are the arsine gas detector modification potential, methods to provide automated "on-line" monitoring and utilization for arsenic removal.
