Des Moines keeps up struggle with nitrate in water
DES MOINES (AP) — Rivers that supply Des Moines’ drinking water are still showing high nitrate levels, prompting officials to turn to a reservoir and other sources for water.
Des Moines Water Works has already spent $500,000 removing nitrate this year and said the persistent problem likely will lead to higher water rates for customers to pay for the additional cost of treatment, The Des Moines Register reported.
The city typically draws water from the Raccoon and Des Moines rivers and mixes it with water from a reservoir to keep nitrate levels lower.
