Abstract/Contents:Discusses effluent water, stating that it is "water that has undergone one cycle of use and treated to Congress and EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] standards." Suggests that in using effluent water, "turfgrass managers will have to adjust management practices to account for a less pure water supply, which will alter soil and plant properties." Highlights the result of a survey of nine waste water treatment plant's (WWTP) in Wisconsin, conducted in February, 2009, to "evaluate the average quality of effluent water and its potential use as irrigation water for turfgrass in Wisconsin." Concludes that "as demand increases, potable water becomes more costly, infrastructure is built and research is conducted, the use of recycled wastewater will become a core resource for irrigation...Effluent water shouldn't be considered a waste, but a valuable asset in conserving potable water supplies and sustaining healthy turf growth."
