Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "examine the impact of treated sewage effluent used as the sole irrigation source on southeastern hybrid bermudagrass...fairways, examining both water- and soil-quality indices." Details the methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the two-year study was initiated in October 2006 at a 20-year old central Alabama golf course with Tifway hybrid bermudagrass fairways. The golf course had been irrigated with effluent for at least five years." Reports that "for the two years of the study, the southeastern U.S. [United States] was in a severe drought...Thus, for this two-year period, the effluent dump zone could not be viewed as a worst-case scenario of nutrient acclimation." Concludes that "there were no accumulations in soil nitrate-nitrogen, phosphate-phosphorus or electrical conductivity. Effluent water measured both as the fairway and storage lagoon never has nitrate-nitrogen levels that exceeded U.S. EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] drinking water standards."
