The Report of the Commission on Nitrates in Groundwater

Publication type: 

Over the past three decades, Prince Edward Island has experienced a steady increase in the level of nitrates – both in the groundwater we rely on for drinking water, and in rivers, streams and estuaries that are home to a wide variety of wildlife and a source of livelihood and enjoyment for many people. Islanders are concerned about this trend and the effects on their health and the environment; and they are frustrated that nitrate concentrations have been allowed to reach current levels without something being done to address the problem.
