Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "understand the fate and transport of PPCP/EDCs [pharmaceutical and personal care products/endocrine disrupting compounds] in golf courses when reuse water is used as the sole source of irrigation water." Describes the experiment and the methods used. Reports that "the same four PPCPs were detected in the low and the high irrigation rates, but generally at higher concentrations under high irrigation."

USGA Summary Points:Aerobic and anaerobic soil conditions were evaluated for their effectiveness in degrading PPCPs. Most PPCPs were stable in anaerobic conditions versus being attenuated in aerobic soil conditions. Three of the 17 compounds have been detected in the drainage samples that were selected based on meeting pore volume displacement goals. Primidone, sulfamethoxazole, trimethoprim, and carbamazepine were detected in the low and high irrigation rates, but generally at higher concentration under high irrigation. Removals through the sandy loam soil were about 59, 99, 87, and 67%, respectively. Three of the four PPCPs detected in the sandy loam soil leachate were also detected in loamy sand leachate at the low irrigation rate. All four were detected at the high irrigation rate. Removals were about 77-88% in loamy sand soil.
