Nitrate Control Program Overview

CV-SALTS has developed the Central Valley’s Nitrate Control Program to address historical nitrate problems affecting groundwater, which is a main source of drinking water in rural and disadvantaged communities throughout the Kaweah Subbasin. The Nitrate Control Program’s three primary goals consist of:

  1. Provide safe drinking water, particularly for residents in affected areas, as quickly as possible
  2. Reduce nitrate impacts to water supplies
  3. Restore groundwater quality where feasible
