Nitrate-Nitrogen Screening Results

A free nitrate-nitrogen screening was held on Tuesday April 6, 2021 in the Town of Grant.  The session was held from 7 am until 8 pm in conjunction with Election Day.  Local residents were invited to bring in a water sample and have their sample screened for a nitrate-nitrogen concentration, free of cost.

During the screening, 52 water samples were screened for nitrate-nitrogen. The average concentration over all the samples was 3.44 mg/L. The lowest recorded concentration was 0 mg/L and the highest concentration was 25.6 mg/L. The state and federal drinking water standard is 10 mg/L. Five of the 52 samples (9.6%) came back over the drinking water standard. We consider any nitrate-nitrogen concentration below 2 mg/L to be at natural or background levels. Levels above 2 mg/L show that there is some human influence. Twenty five of the 52 samples (48%), had results below 2 mg/L or below natural background levels of nitrate-nitrogen. A summary of the results is attached


Nitrate AmountWhat That Means
less than 2mg/L
 “natural” soil/groundwater content
2 to 9.99 mg/L
influenced (septic system, fertilizer, etc.)
10 mg/L and above 
dangerous to infants if water used for formula (risk of blue-baby syndrome)
