Winnipeg up a alarmed by Tim Prospect of dead lakes and undrinkable water researchers Are taking a hard look at the use of fertilizers and the handling of animal manure. Manure and some fertilizers contain High amounts of nitrates which seep through soil into groundwater or run off into lakes Andrj seas. A there s real concern because nitrate Levels in groundwater and in the great lakes Are steadily increasing a said John Gulley a research scientist with agriculture Canada in Ottawa. Nitrates occur naturally As or garlic matter Breaks Down in the soil. They Leach in Small amounts into groundwater. But heavy use of fertilizers and the modern practice of raising hundreds or thousands of cattle pigs or chickens in a Small area can result in greatly increased nitrate Levels. The human body converts nitrates into nitrites which limit the ability of the blood to carry oxygen. Infants can suffer the most. Brain damage or death can result from oxygen starvation also called the a Blue baby some studies have suggested High Levels of nitrates in water also increase the incidence of stomach cancer. On the Prairies where fertilizer use soared from 500, he tonnes in the Early 1970s to 2.5 million tonnes by the mid �?T80s, nitrate contamination is frequently the result of fertilizer spills or the improper handling of manure. But scientists say research is needed to determine if nitrates could eventually wind up in the water Supply. See Foj amp waterworks for swimming pools 840 Mctavish ave.
