USGA Summary Points:As the golf course and the wetland mature, they become more efficient in improving the water quality as it flows through the course. Key parameters like nitrogen and pesticide concentrations were either decreased as the water circulated through the golf course wetlands or were not detectable at either sampling site. No unusually high levels of any of a wide array of potential pollutants, including pesticides and metals, were detected at the golf course sampling sites.
