BRIGHTON — City water being returned to the South Platte River has too much nitrogen in it, and the cost of searching for a way to fix it has topped $255,000. 

In an 8-0 vote during the March 4 meeting, City Council approved $31,600 in additional funding for a fluidized bed denitrification study as part of a project to reduce nitrate levels in brine water from the city’s reverse osmosis water treatment plant. This brings the total cost of the study to $255,900.
