• The largest source of nitrates in water comes from
nitrogen-based fertilizers that get into shallow drinking
water wells that are typically in rural areas.
• Other nitrates may get into water from animal wastes
and poor working sewer systems.
• For infants who are bottle-fed, nitrate poisoning can
happen when nitrate contaminated drinking water is
used to dilute formula.
