The contamination of groundwater by arsenic in Bangladesh was first confirmed by the Table 2 Main aquifer units of the Quaternary delta (BGS/DPHE)

Again BGS came back to Bangladesh in 1992 to assess the quality of the water of the tube-wells they installed but they still did not test for arsenic when groundwater arsenic contamination and its health effects in West Bengal in Bengal delta was already published in WHO Bulletin in 1988. (DPHE) tested wells in western Bangladesh after ground-water arsenic was discovered in West Bengal. It is now documented that high concentrations of arsenic are wide-spread in Bangladesh [e.g., BGS and DPHE, 2001; Abul et al., 2001a]. Also, it is generally agreed that the arsenic is Copyright 2003 by the American Geophysical Union.

The British Geological Survey (BGS), the UK's most prestigious hydrology centre, carried out the studies on behalf of the Bangladeshi government in the mid-1980s and early-1990s, more than six years before arsenic was shown to be the cause of the mystery illnesses affecting millions of people.

It is now documented that high concentrations of arsenic are wide-spread in Bangladesh [e.g., BGS and DPHE, 2001; Abul et al., 2001a]. Also, it is generally agreed that the arsenic is Copyright 2003 by the American Geophysical Union. The claimants are Bangladeshi villagers who drank arsenic-contaminated water from wells dug by the BGS during the 1980s and early 1990s. The number of claimants could run into thousands. If the demographics of Bangladesh as reported by the BBS and arsenic concentrations as reported by the BGS and DPHE continue into the future, the health effects of dissolved arsenic in well water will be severe: prevalences of about 2 million cases of arsenicosis and 125,000 cases of skin cancers, and incidences of several thousand deaths from internal cancers per year.
