California is the leading producer of dairy in the United States so no surprise the state is home to nearly 2 million dairy cows which produce a significant amount of manure containing nitrates. As the farmers use the manure to fertilize their fields and the manure is used for fertilizing thousands more crop acres the plants don’t absorb all of it and it seeps into the ground water. This can be lethal if too much is consumed. So how will it get fixed and where else does the U.S. have similar issues that haven’t been addressed yet?

It’s a serious problem in rural communities that rely solely on wells for drinking water because it can cause health problems or even death, especially for infants and pregnant women.”
