Abstract/Contents:"Although wastewater (effluent) application to golf courses is a practice of interest across the USA, research has largely centered on effluent use in the arid southwest. The objective of this research project was to sample effluent used to irrigate a southeastern golf course, and to also sample soil receiving effluent application. From October 2006 to October 2008 soil and effluent samples were taken monthly from three replicate fairways, the sewage lagoon itself, and a "no effluent" (control) area. Both soil and effluent samples were analyzed for nitrate (NO3-N), ammonium (NH4-N), phosphate (PO4-P), and electrical conductivity (EC). Average EC of effluent was low (0.23 dS/m), and average EC in effluent treated soil was 0.26 dS/m, as compared to 0.21 dS/m in soil not receiving effluent. Extractable soil PO4-P ranged from a low of 1.6 to a high of 62.2 ug/g, and always remained within the "medium" range for a P soil test, indicating that P was not accumulating in the upper 7.6 cm of soil. Highest and lowest effluent NO3-N was 7.24 and 0.12 ug/mL, respectively, with a 2-year average of 1.88 and 2.11 ug/mL measured in fairway irrigation and lagoon effluent, respectively. In this 2-year period, continuous irrigation with effluent water posed no observed environmental or agronomic hazards to the sampled 7.6-cm deep soil layer nor to the hybrid bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. X Cynodon transvaalensis Burtt-Davy] on the golf course fairways."
