Abstract/Contents:"Irrigation water and runoff water were monitored for three years at Dove Canyon Country Club to evaluate the impact of the golf course on down-stream quality. When compared to the reclaimed irrigation water used throughout the development and the golf course, the runoff water was significantly lower in nitrates, total phosphorous, and total organic halogens. Oil and grease, total organic carbon, pH, and electrical conductivity of the runoff water were significantly higher than the irrigation water. There was no significant difference in the concentration of ammonia, nitrites, total Kjeldahl nitrogen in the irrigation and runoff waters. These results support the value of turfgrasses in capturing nitrogen and phosphorous, two key nutrients that can lead to eutrophication of waterways. The origin of the oil and grease, organic carbon, elevated pH and inceased salinity may be the golf course or the surrounding community that also drains into the same streams."
