XI. Water Quality Parameters

Goal: To develop and sustain a monitoring program that establishes a baseline of water quality parameters for golf courses. This program will help in protecting ground and surface water supplies and determine if the golf course is having a positive, negative or neutral effect on water quality ( on-site and downstream sites). Sampling should occur in both wet and dry weather events with a minimum of two monitorings events each year. (Water quality tests should include but not limited to these parameters: Field measurements - water temperature, pH, conductivity, turbidity and dissolved oxygen. Laboratory analysis - nitrate, ammonia, orthophosphate, total suspended solids.)
