California’s first water warnings and warnings are expected to break records in September

Southern California braces for another September heat wave after an extended streak of unseasonably high temperatures.

Officials across Southern California are bracing for another round of record-breaking temperatures in September. The latest round of blistering heat is likely to break all-time records for the month, according to The Associated Press.

This is the first time Southern California has used an elevated nitrate level to warn people of possible high-level contamination.

The warning is for residents of Ventura, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties in Orange County, and Riverside County in Los Angeles County.

“Because the advisory is based on the levels of nitrate found in our water supplies in Southern California we want the public to know that they need to take immediate action to protect themselves and their families from exposure to nitrates,” said Tom Wiet, spokesman for the state Department of Public Health.

“The levels of nitrate in our water supplies exceed the standards for recreational use, and the levels of this contaminant can pose a health risk to young children and infants who are consuming this water.”

Wiet said the higher levels of nitrate that were recommended by the county can remain in water for months, making it
