Location: Soil Drainage Research
Project Number: 5080-13000-011-22
Start Date: Jan 27, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2015
A field approach will be used to assess and characterize the environmental aspects of golf course turf, including the development and evaluation of management strategies and/or technologies. Before – after watershed scale studies will be used to quantify the fate and transport as well as aid in the determination of the processes and management controlling the fate and transport of nutrients, pesticides, and sediment from turf environments. The research site is located at Northland Country Club in Duluth, MN. Four different sites (two surface and two subsurface) are instrumented with automated sampling equipment. Treatments include an end-of-tile cartridge system as well as setbacks from surface inlets, and filter socks around surface inlets.
