Nitrite and Nitrite as N


Measurement of Nitrite and Nitrate as N in drinking water.

Excess nitrates (NO3) in soil are often found in rural and agricultural areas. The most common sources of nitrate are fertilizer, livestock waste, and septic systems. Nitrates in soil are highly mobile and can be easily transported to groundwater.

High nitrate levels in groundwater have been found in some agricultural areas. This is a concern because excess nitrates can cause serious health effects if consumed.
