Most golf courses in Virginia fall within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, the largest U.S. estuary famed for its seafood production, especially blue crabs, oysters, and rockfish. However, most of the Chesapeake Bay is impaired due to excess nitrogen and phosphorus levels. In this 90-minute webcast, Erik Ervin, Ph.D., reviews data from six Virginia golf courses where N, P, and other water quality parameters were monitored over three years at golf course stream entry and exit points. Tune in to hear whether standard golf course fertility practices were associated with increased stream nutrient levels and learn what that may mean for your facility’s water.
