Due to recent concerns expressed on social media about nitrate levels in the North Salt Lake water system, we have put together the following information to help residents understand the sampling and testing process that is done on a regular basis.
The City is mandated by Federal and State requirements to keep our system in compliance. In response to these recent posts about nitrate levels, two samples were taken at the two water sources (wells) that are currently supplying water to our system. We also took two samples at the home on Skipton Drive where a high read was reported and another two samples from a fire hydrant across the street. One sample from each location went to the Weber lab in Layton and the other to Chemtech Ford’s laboratory in Sandy. Both labs are part of the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP).
