Barium

Marine Corps Base Hawaii

NOTE: Marine Corps Base Hawaii purchases water from Honolulu-Windward-Pearl Harbor which is required to test for barium. Sample information shown below was taken by Honolulu-Windward-Pearl Harbor.

Barium is a mineral present in rocks, soil and water. High concentrations of barium in drinking water increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension.

State and national drinking water standards and health guidelines

EWG Health Guideline 700 ppb

The EWG Health Guideline of 700 ppb for barium was defined by EWG as benchmark that protects against harm to the kidneys and the cardiovascular system.

EPA Maximum Contaminant
Level (MCL) 2,000 ppb

The legal limit for barium, established in 1991, was based on a 10-week study of barium exposure in 11 adult male volunteers. This limit does not include any additional consideration of children’s health.
