Nitrate levels have risen again above allowable limits in Rural Water District 101, which serves the Yoder area. The last Nitrate level test was collected on September 5, 2023. The level tested at 11.6 mg/L, which exceeds the Kansas and Federal (EPA) maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 mg/L for public water supply systems. Nitrate levels in water resources have increased in many areas due to applications of inorganic fertilizer and animal manure in agricultural areas.+
Infants below the age of six months should not drink the tap water but adults and children older than six months can.
