USGA Summary Points:Data analysis showed that golf course construction has the greatest impacts on surface water quality with average concentrations of 3.94 mg/L, 0.93 mg/L, and 2,955 mg/L for total N (TN), total P (TP), and sediment (TSS) respectively, compared with 1.18 mg/L, 0.39 mg/L, and 477 mg/L for the pre-construction period. During operation, sediment content was brought down significantly to an average of 397 mg/L, lower than that of the native prairie condition, due to turfgrass. The average concentrations of TN and TP were 2.38 mg/L and 0.67 mg/L, much lower than those in the construction period, but still about twice as much as those in the native prairie condition. Only a few samples have TN great [greater] than 10 mg/L, a drinking water standard. We therefore believe that golf course operation, as a whole, does not post immediate threat to the acquatic system.
