Arsenic Disaster Mitigation in Bangladesh

Arsenic Patients:

can supply clean drinking water for one family

Currently, more than 50,000 patients are suffering from numerous chronic arsenic-related diseases including several types of cancer. Many have already died and more than 85 millions of people are consuming arsenic poison water through drinking water and food prepared with arsenic poison water on a daily basis. There is no remedy to these problems and the only solution to the problem is to use arsenic-free water. In 2009, AHWEEC’s V.P., visited several districts of Bangladesh and discovered various level of arsenic patients, presence of arsenic in Coconut juice, Date plum juice and cow milk.

Extent of Arsenic Disasters:

The bar diagrams show the Division, District and number of Upazila in each district, and less than 40 percent contaminated tube wells (yellow) and more that 40 percent contaminated tube wells (red). This information is based on the National Screening Survey conducted in 2004. The current contaminated status may be different than the previous survey because of geochemical changes in the groundwater aquifers.

Current Projects:

  • 30 non-chemical and non-electricity based arsenic removal projects in rural areas.
  • 6 tube wells in unconfined aquifers in rural areas
  • 5 pathogens contaminants removal projects in urban areas.
  • 4 Electricity based Mukti Aboveground Water Treatment System for 1000 people each.
  • 1 Underground Arsenic Removal Treatment System for agricultural Irrigation Water Supply-Research Project.
  • 2 Solar power based  Mukti Water Treatment System Feasibility Study.
