USGA Summary Points:Data analysis showed that golf course contstruction 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. Nitrogen and phosphorous absorbed by sediment particles and brought down to streams in runoff events are the major source of nutrient in streams. Only a few samples have TN great than 10 mg/L, a drinking water standard. We therefore believe that golf course operation, as a whole, does not pose immediate threat to the aquatic system.
