ABSTRACT
The article discusses a response to B. Morse on "The role of arsenic-bearing rocks in groundwater pollution at Zimapan Valley, Mexico." In his comment, B. Morse (2001) cites two concerns he has about this work. First, he believes there can be no possibility of significant groundwater flow along the Malacate Fault north of the valley to the vicinity of the productive deep arsenic contaminated wells and uses the model he developed as his undergraduate thesis project to substantiate his claim of flow direction. He also disagrees with the geochemical assessment of the arsenic source. Each issue will be discussed in turn. In his analysis of the chemical data, Morse neglected the fact that the more polluted groundwater comes from limestone aquifers.
