Research Project: Reuse of Municipal Waste Waters for Irrigation: Plant Response and Impact on Soil Properties Project Number: 5310-61000-016-04
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 04, 2009
End Date: Sep 03, 2014

Objective:
To determine the impact of treated municipal waste water and other waste waters on soil physical and chemical properties and plant response (biomass, marketable yield and growth/appearance (turfgrass) and compare this response to that of degraded low organic natural waters.

Approach:
To conduct laboratory and field research as needed to evaluate the use of treated municipal waste waters and other waste waters for irrigation of crops and turfgrass. This will include measurement of soil physical properties and plant growth and yield characteristics. Documents SCA with University of California - Riverside.
