Recycled (reclaimed) water may be a suitable alternative source of irrigation for sports turf in arid and semi-arid regions and in highly populated areas.
Increasing public acceptance of treated municipal sewage water to irrigate sports fields creates this option.
Although ultimately recycled water use is dictated by local laws, irrigating sports fields with recycled water should be seriously considered where domestic water is not readily available or too expensive.
Factors affecting the decision to use recycled water for sports field irrigation include: human health considerations, soil conditions, irrigation factors, nutrient content of water, and, most importantly, recycled water’s dissolved salts.
