City of Arlington Water Supply Shows High Nitrate Levels


ARLINGTON, Kan. – The City of Arlington has issued a public notice regarding nitrate levels in the city’s water supply. A sample tested on April 18th showed a nitrate level of 11 milligrams per liter, which is above the federal nitrate standard of 10 milligrams per liter.

As a result, tap water from the City of Arlington’s supply should not be given to infants under six months, which includes use in preparing juice and formula. The city recommends using bottled water instead, which is available at City Hall for infants, as well as pregnant or nursing mothers and the elderly with health conditions.
