In Canterbury, polluting nitrates were on the rise and risk maps the regional council was relying on were out of date, Forest and Bird said. Using the council's own data, the environmental group created its own map, which it said showed an increasing number of private wells had nitrate levels above the safe standard for drinking :// Environmental Audit Committee inquiry into nitrates. Scope of the inquiry. The Environmental Audit Committee will consider the nature, scale and impacts of nitrate pollution on the environment and human life, and review the Government’s approach to the regulation of the chemicals concerned and its approach to reducing :// /inquiries/parliament/nitrates-inquiry

  Therefore, determining the nitrate and nitrite levels in biological, food, and environmental samples is important to protect human health and the environment. In this context, we set this study, in which we report the effect of production system (conventional and organic) on the accumulation of nitrates and nitrites in fresh baby-leaf :// The most controversial and political of the top 10 environmental issues. Recently an overwhelming majority of climate scientists, believe that human activities are currently affecting the climate and that the tipping point has already been passed. In other words, it is too late to undo the damage that climate change has done to the

Our results showed that the N concentrations of soil water ( mg L−1) and groundwater ( mg L−1) were the highest, approximately 2 to 5 times higher than those of stream water ( mg L Nitrates Vulnerable Zones are areas where nitrate concentration in ground and in drinking water amount to 50 mg/l or more. In these zones the intensive use of fertilizers and the high animal densities contribute to environmental nitrate pollution, as acknowledged by European Water Framework Directive.
