Update and Health Information for Española Water System Users

On March 6, 2019, the City of Española was informed that a testing sample from November 2018 indicated that the levels of nitrate in the City of Española drinking water were slightly in excess of Environmental Protection Agency standards. Subsequent testing in January 2019, however, has indicated that nitrate levels are now under the threshold. Nitrate in drinking water is a serious concern for infants less than six months old, pregnant women and individuals with compromised immune systems.
