Can Bacteria Remove Nitrates & Nitrites from Well Water?

Can it really be true? This article set me back on my heels.

A water company in Minnesota is testing a method to remove nitrates and nitrites in well drinking water. I couldn’t believe what they wanted to introduce into the water to do this…

…bacteria!

The article didn’t say what bacteria is being tested for doing this,  but if it’s a pathogenic bacteria, it will be really interesting to see where and how they plan to introduce it. bacteria

We all know that pathogenic bacteria such a e-coli or chloroform presents a real health hazard if it’s found in well water.  In fact, if it’s found, the well owner needs to sanitize their well immediately. That’s why we created our Well Water Wellness Kit.

I’ll try to monitor this experiment to see if I can learn more specifics and if do, I will post it here—so stay tuned.
