Current Suspected Overdose Deaths in Delaware for 2020: Get Help Now!
Water sample results received showed nitrate levels that average 20.2 parts per million (ppm) in August. This is above the nitrate standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 ppm adopted by the State of Delaware from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Drinking Water Standards. Nitrate in drinking water is a serious health concern for infants less than one year old.
We are working with the Division of Public Health to resolve the nitrate violation.
Nitrate in drinking water can come from natural, domestic, industrial, or agricultural sources. Levels of nitrate in drinking water can vary throughout the year. We’ll let you know when the amount of nitrate is again below the limit. This notice will remain posted for as long as the water exceeds the nitrate standard of 10 ppm.
