There’s hope that the concerns over nitrite levels in water supplies west of Commerce could come to an end as early as the first week of September.

The North Hunt Special Utility District, which provides water to rural customers in Hunt and Fannin counties, issued an alert on Aug. 8 that high nitrite levels had been identified in water systems serving customers along CR 4511, CR 2874 and CR 4400 – all west of Commerce. The statement cautioned that infants under the age of six months should not drink the water.
