The use of recycled water golf course irrigation requires carefull monitoring and management of available recycled water quality in order to reduce risks of health hazzard for humans and animals, plant injury and problems for irrigation systems.
Westlake Golf Club 10.000 m3 irrigation pond receives 1.800 m3 water daily from the local sewage treatment plant causing several problems in March 2017:
- Unpleasant odors
- Grey murky water
- Extremely high level of bacteria
The presence of Faecal Coliforms in the irrigation reservoir is an indicator that water have been contaminated by pathogens, desease producing bacteria or viruses, which can cause a potential health risk or humans, animals and plants exposed to this water.
It is important to remember that many pathogenic bacteria are anearobes, requires organic matter, carbon dioxide, phosphorus, nitrogen, ammonia or sulphur to survive. Therefore the dissolved oxygen is key, as it oxydizes anearobic pathogens, reduces cardon dioxide in the water and encourage the growth of beneficial aerobic microorganisms.
Based in the assesment of the site and water analysis data, our team of experts recommended 60 days treatment of the pond with MK1 Ultra Fine Bubble Generator to the Golf Club management.
The objectives of the treatment were to:
- Increase dissolve oxygen level
- Remove the unpleasant odor asap
- Reduce the harmfull bacteria
- Restore the water clarity
- Restore the natural balance of the pond
Golf Course Turf:
Objectives 100% achieved.
