Nitrite levels in Wellman’s water supply are back to normal. The city issued a warning last week advising residents not to give infants under six months old tap water after testing found unsafe levels of nitrite. The advisory was necessary due to the risk of serious illness and death in those that young. Results from a second set of water samples returned yesterday showed levels were back within normal limits. Testing will be ongoing to ensure safe levels are maintained.
