Here in Virginia we have an excellent water provider. Each year they sample our community well and send us a report on the findings. Last year's report reads a level detected of 6.59 out of a maximum of 10 so I feel pretty safe. We also use a water purifier, but the report reads:

"Nitrate in drinking water at levels about 10ppm is a health risk for infants of less then six months of age. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome. Nitrate levels may rise quickly for short periods of time because of rainfall or agricultural activity. If there is an infant in your home you should seek advice from your health care advisor."

So it is always good to be on the cautious side.

If you can't afford to buy bottle water all the time you can also boil your water & then put it in a jug in the fridge. But remember that you do need some flouride that is in tap water not bottled water. especially for younger children. We were taught this in our Pediatrics & OB class in nursing school
