Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted "to measure and assess the small-watershed-scale impact of a golf course on hydrolic and surface water quality." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "management practices during the study period were typical of courses in the upper Midwest [United States]." Reports that "annual precipitation during the four-year study period was below normal...Annual discharge volumes (combination of base flow and storm-event runoff) for the study period were equivalent to approximately 47% of the precipitation volume." States that "the measured phosphorus concentrations were consistent with concentrations shown to cause eutrophic conditions in lakes, ponds and streams." Concludes that "nitrogen losses on the course, although statistically significant, pose little environmental threat. However, phosphorus losses, although small in magnitude, exceeded the concentrations linked to eutrophication."
