Effect of graywater irrigation on soil quality and fate and transport of surfactants in soil
While interest in and adoption of graywater reuse for irrigation has rapidly grown in recent years, little is known about the long-term effects of graywater irrigation. Concerns exist in relation to the presence of pathogenic organisms, fate of personal care products, and accumulation of salts. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the long-term effects of graywater irrigation to soil quality. The specific objectives were to evaluate the effects of graywater application on physical and chemical quality of soil, including surfactants, salts and boron accumulation, organic matter leaching ...
