Nitrate and Nitrite in Drinking Water Webinar
CEU TYPE: Technical
WEBINAR TYPE: Technical
Presenter: Terry Engelhardt,
Application Development Manager – Drinking Water - Hach Company
Summary: Naturally available nutrients in soil may not be sufficient when the land is used to provide large amounts of food for a growing population. Additional nutrient sources, i.e. manufactured fertilizer, must be provided. Nitrogen provided in fertilizers for crops if not absorbed readily by plants may migrate through the soil and into ground water and streams as nitrate where it can become a health concern. The source of high nitrate is not limited to agricultural practices. Septic systems and cultivation of lawns, parks, and golf courses in urban and suburban areas also contribute to the problem.
This document is intended to survey the sources and significance of nitrate and nitrite in drinking water and the analytical methods and equipment available for measurement. Examples from stream monitoring data will be provided to illustrate the extent of nitrate content variation in water supplies.
