This Univ. Cambridge (UK) 2000 M.Sc. thesis of Mr. Md. Jakariya looked the causes for different responses of two different villages to arsenic contamination of groundwater used drinking.  In one of the villages, 85% of residents were consuming arsenic-safe water, either treated or from alternative sources.  In the other village, over 80% of residents continued to consume arsenic-contaminated water.  The difference in  response in the two village was found to be be related to differences in practical evidence of arsenic toxicity (ie the number of arsenic-affected patients) in the village and differences in difficulty of obtaining alternative water supplies.

This 2000 study by Dr. Bennett looked at available maps and historical statistics for the Red River Basin of land use, population, infrastructure, etc., and discussed the land use and water resources management implications related to urbanization, population growth, explosive groundwater development, the pressing need for poverty alleviation, etc.
