Nitrates Water Contamination Blamed on California Farmers



EPA Health Facts on Nitrates Water Contamination
From epa.gov
Farmers in California are being blamed for nitrates water contamination. According to a new report, the farmers’ use of fertilizers is being linked with nitrates contamination in the water supply.  The situation could affect millions of California residents, stated the story, and one water agency is trying to force farmers to begin testing. For many Californians, the water that trickles into the ground is the same ground water drawn from wells that flow from their taps.

The news cited a recent UC Davis study that showed at least 254,000 people in the Tulare Lake Basin and Salinas Valley were at risk of drinking water contaminated with nitrates. And the nitrates water contamination is being linked to fertilizer use. Nitrate fertilizers have been used for more than 40-years, but only in recent decades has the link been made between groundwater contamination and fertilizer.
