Yugoslavia: As in GW in Vojvodina, Serbia & Montenegro
- From daily Serbian-language newspaper Blic (www.blic.co.yu), 22 January 2004
English summary: Arsenic has been detected in ground water in the northern
province of Vojvodina, in wells supplying Zrenjanin. Concentrations range
from 80 to 120 micrograms/L.
This led to closing the water supply from the wells. Bottled water disappeared
The article also points at increased concentrations of As in neighboring
Romania and Hungary - all three a part of the huge Panonian Plain.
