Nitrite is a form of nitrogen that may be an indication of recent fecal contamination in the water supply. Typically, this test is conducted when a new well is installed or when pump maintenance occurs. The maximum allowable level of nitrite in potable water is less than 1.0 milligram (mg)/ 1 liter (L) of water.
