Nitrate and Nitrite Control

Often the best solution for nitrate and nitrite pollution is relocation of the well or drilling the well deeper into an uncontaminated aquifer. The only effective methods of treatment are distillation, reverse osmosis and high quality ion-exchange columns, but these will often not be economically feasible. Activated carbon filters will not remove nitrates or nitrites.
