Nitrates can enter the water supply chain from water which has passed through heavily fertilized agricultural land. Although it is monitored by water authorities levels can rise enough to be a possible risk if consumed .
Methemoglobinemia, or blue-baby syndrome, is a condition caused by the inability of the blood to deliver enough oxygen to the body. It is the most well-known effect of exposure to elevated levels of nitrate in drinking water. When nitrate is ingested it is converted to another chemical form, nitrite. Babies are most at risk from nitrate contamination during the first 3-4 months when they are developing due to poor blood oxygenation caused by nitrates if a baby is bottle fed. Nitrates can also cause issues with pond life and can accelerate harmful algae growth
