Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate the impacts of fertilizer and pesticide applications on surface water quality on a field-scale level at two Pacific Northwest golf courses." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that researchers "monitored concentrations of nitrate-nitrogen (NO3-N), soluble orthophosphate and pesticides in streams on two Pacific Northwest golf courses from June 2002 through May 2004...The study was conducted at two private 18-hole golf courses located in urban/suburban settings in western Washington state." States that "fertilizer and pesticide application records were maintained by the golf course staff and reported to [researchers]." Reports that "concentrations of nitrate-nitrogen were approximately three times higher in winter as compared to summer, and orthophosphate differed by a factor of about four. For 15 of the monthly samples, nitrage-nitrogen concentration in exit point samples was lower than that in corresponding entry point samples by 0.1 to 0.2 parts per million (ppm)." Concludes that "two years of monthly stream sampling at two Pacific Northwest golf courses indicated that golf course management practices resulted in no significant negative impacts on water quality. Concentrations of nitrate-nitrogen and orthophosphate were marginally but statistically lower in exit point samples than in entry samples at Royal Oaks [Country Club], and there were no significant differences between entry and exit points samples for Glendale [Country Club]."
