Wastewater Reuse for Golf Course Irrigation, authored by leading researchers and practitioners, covers a wide range of technical and regulatory aspects of how and why to irrigate golf courses with reused wastewater. Water quality, water conservation, regulations, water rights, water delivery, design of systems, monitoring concerns, retrofitting a course for recycled water, and successful case studies are just some of the important topics covered in this informative, valuable book.
California, Arizona, and Florida are a few of the states that have laws mandating the uses of reused wastewater. This book will help golf course superintendents, irrigation consultants, architects, and builders understand how it affects their job and what to do about it.
