Health Risks and Solutions for Kitsap County

Did you know that nitrates are a common contaminant found in Kitsap County’s drinking water? They can come from many sources, including agricultural runoff, septic tanks, and natural geological formations. Unfortunately, the presence of nitrates in drinking water can have serious health risks, especially for infants and pregnant women.

Health Risks of Nitrates in Drinking Water

Nitrates can cause methemoglobinemia, also known as “blue baby syndrome.” This condition occurs when nitrates interfere with the body’s ability to carry oxygen, resulting in a blue tint to the skin and lips. Infants under six months of age are especially susceptible to this condition, which can be fatal if left untreated.

Additionally, long-term exposure to nitrates has been linked to an increased risk of cancer, reproductive issues, and thyroid problems. That’s why it’s crucial to take steps to ensure the safety of your drinking water.
