Ammonia can get into tap water in various ways, such as agricultural runoff, industrial discharge, and the leaching of natural deposits. It can also be added to water as a disinfectant, although this is less common. In some cases, ammonia may also be introduced into the water supply through the breakdown of organic matter, such as leaves and other debris, that have entered the water supply – however, this would only be the case in small amounts.

Are you concerned about your drinking water quality? If so, it may be worth testing specifically for Ammonia if you live in an area with a water utility that employs chloramine for disinfection, are close to agricultural and farming activity, or live close by industrial waste sites.
