It's possible to have nitrate in tap water, but the level should never
exceed 44 mg/l (10 mg/l as nitrate-nitrogen) in a public water supply.
That's a public health standard recognized and used all over the world.
110 ppm is staggeringly high for a water supply.  If you're reading the
kit correctly then it's almost certainly wrong.
