Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "obtain, screen (quality control), and evaluate all relevant and valid water quality monitoring studies for North American golf courses, with a focus on pesticides, nitrate-N [nitrate nitrogen], and phosphorus." Explains that "the results of this research will provide scientifically valid, updated information that can be used in public hearings, regulatory decisions on golf course permitting, and pesticide registration. Equally important, it will help the industry better understand the extent to which - if any - it is impacting water quality." Concludes that the "preparation of [a] manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed journal has begun."

USGA Summary Points:"Data files from the original water quality study (1996/1997) have been imported manually from Paradox into the Microsoft Access database." "Attempts were made to update monitoring data from the original studies included in the 1999 publication." "Solicitation of new monitoring studies was completed." "Quality control procedures were developed for reviewers to follow during the study acceptance phase." "We have evaluated 29 new studies, of which 27 passed QC review and were incorporated into the database (in addition to the 1996/1997 studies)." "The database now includes 44 studies of 80 golf courses, totaling 40,791 data points representing the analyses of pesticides, pesticide metabolites, nitrate-N, and total phosphorus." "Average contaminant concentrations in surface and ground water have been computed and compared against various water quality criteria (MCLs, HALS, and MACs for aquatic life)." "Rates of exceedances of the water quality criteria have been computed." "Statistical analyses are mostly complete." "Preparation of manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed journal has begun."
