USGA Summary Points:Turfgrass sites that have been irrigated with effluent water for 11 years exhibited an increased soil pH, soil ESP, and soil sodium content; Ten years of effluent water irrigation has increased Kentucky bluegrass clipping sodium content by more than 4 times. Boron and chloride content increased , whereas tissue zinc content was reduced. Despite the significant mineral content changes, turfgrasses generally exhibited acceptable quality. We observed salinity stress on some localized sites with fine soil texture and poor drainage under effluent water irrigation. Soil aerification and gypsum addition effectively prevented a dramatic increase in soil ESP at the shallow soil depths, although soil ESP increased significantly at deeper soil depths. The degree of soil pH increase under effluent water irrigaton was greater at deeper than at shallow soil depths
