Arsenic in Well water

Hi, from Homer, Alaska...

My question is for anyone who knows anything about arsenic contamination in well water?

 I recently purchased land, had a well dug (78 feet) and happily sent the test sample off to the state lab upon hitting a decent flow of water.. The arsenic test came back at above 220 ug/l , in leiu of an expensive treatment system, we drilled again, in a new location.. (200 feet) LO and behold! The Arsenic test came back from the lab, at a level of 419 ug/l !! does anyone know if this measurement is comprable to ppm, ppb, or what? and any ideas for how to eliminate arsenic? thanx..

For pure water,
ppm = mg/L
ppb = ug/L

Though I have no idea what to do about the arsenic.
