To evaluate the short- and long-term effects of irrigation with reclaimed water and graywater on nursery & greenhouse crops and landscape plants as compared to municipal potable or high-quality water sources.
Controlled irrigation and survey (sample collection & analyses) studies will be conducted to evaluate the effects of reclaimed and graywater irrigation on nursery/greenhouse crops and landscape plants and selected properties of the substrates and soils where they are growing. This will include comparative assessments of the status and dynamics of selected chemical, physical, biological and aesthetic properties of these crops, plants and soils irrigated short- and long-term with graywater, reclaimed water and conventional (high quality & potable) waters.
