The Columbia Superfund Research Program’s Hydrogeology Core has generated hydrogeological data needed to ascertain how fast and how far an arsenic contaminated plume spreads beyond its source. In the Health Effects of Arsenic Longitudinal Study Project area in Bangladesh, where most of the Resilience of Low-Arsenic Aquifers and their Role in Reducing Human Exposure Project’s activities are concentrated as well, the Core supported the modeling of groundwater flow into the intermediate low-arsenic aquifer in the area that has been tapped to lower exposure by the installation of thousands of private wells (Mihajlov 2020; Mozumder 2020).
