Arsenic contamination in ground drinking water in the Terai districts of Nepal has become a major health concern since the discovery of the presence of arsenic in ground water in 1999. The potential health risk due to arsenic contaminated drinking water is profound as 48.4% (about 13 million) of the total population of the country inhabits the Terai region,where more than 90% population use ground water as the main source of drinking water.It is estimated that arsenic contamination could affect more than 1.4 million population across 20 Terai districts (UNICEF, 2006), using estimated one million tube wells. Realizing the need to address this serious health issue, number of governmental and nongovernmental organizations have initiated tube well testing and mitigation programs since early 2000.
