TM 13: Reclaimed Water Irrigation
Comment: I would not estimate what is possible to irrigate on the golf courses/community park by assessing historical numbers for the effluent released by the district. The district has not been irrigating to agronomic uptake. Instead much of the “irrigation” is essentially disposal and way past agronomic uptake. Refining irrigation calculations should be a priority to reduce nutrient loading to the Upper West Fork/Middle Fork.
This is debatable, based on analyses by Jacobs (formerly CH2M Hill), HKM (Dowl) and MBMG. Regardless, the actual irrigation values are within the calculations of these various groups.
