Nitrates in Groundwater (1995 to 2019)

Elevated nitrate concentration in groundwater continues to be an issue, particularly in the southeast and south of the country. It may contribute to pollution of surface waters and affect drinking waters.

Note historic concentrations may differ from those previously reported due to the addition to or removal from the network of monitoring points and their associated data.
