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 Amount||What 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)|
