USGA Summary Points:Golf course construction has the greatest impacts on surface water quality with average concentrations of 3.88 mg/L, 0.93 mg/L, and 2,754 mg/L for total N (TN), total P (TP), and sediment (TSS) respectively, compared with 1.18 mg/L, 0.39 mg/L, and 477 mg/L for the pre-construction period. During operation, sediment content was brought down significantly to an average of 594 mg/L, slightly higher than that of the native prairie condition. The average concentrations of TN and TP were 2.10 mg/L and 0.53 mg/L, much lower than those in the construction period, but still over 40 and 25 percent higher than those in the native prairie condition, respectively. There are cases that clearly indicate the amount and timing of fertilizer application are to be blamed.
