Nitrate may cause health problems if present in public or private water supplies in amounts greater than the drinking water standard set by EPA.  Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) = 10 milligrams per Liter (mg/L) or 10 parts per million (ppm).

HOW DOES NITRATE GET INTO MY WATER?
The major sources of nitrates in drinking water are runoff from fertilizer use; leaking from septic tanks, sewage; and erosion of natural deposits.

WHAT IS NITRATE?
Nitrates and nitrites are nitrogen-oxygen chemical units which combine with various organic and inorganic compounds.The greatest use of nitrates is as a fertilizer. Once taken into the body, nitrates are converted to nitrites. CONTACT US

WHAT ARE NITRATE'S HEALTH EFFECTS?

HOW WILL NITRATE BE REMOVED FROM MY DRINKING WATER?
The following treatment method(s) have proven to be effective for removing nitrate to below 10 mg/L or 10 ppm: ion exchange, reverse osmosis, electrodialysis.
