Aqueous Ozone for Reduces Chemical Runoff for Golf Courses
The perfect golf course is a thing of beauty, but it comes at a huge cost. They must be watered, fertilized, and treated for fungi, grubs, and pests. In the end, the run off from golf courses have become a pollution concern for OSHA, the EPA, and state regulators. Fertilizers and pesticides do not stay on the grass. They leach into waterways and find their way into the underground water table. The large land mass of golf courses are a magnification of any well-kept lawn.
Treating grass with aqueous ozone is the best way to reduce the need chemical treatments. The process is as simple as watering the property. So, the treatment can be delivered in areas with a mobile aqueous ozone system or provided through the irrigation channel.
Advantages include: reduced chemical costs, better control of fungus, molds and bacteria that can attack the grass, strong root structure of the grass and the ability to increase oxidation to the grass improving its overall health. Additionally, the Course now becomes a “Green” neighbor to the community with the elimination/reduction of harmful chemical reaching area water sources.
Golf courses are increasingly required to use poor quality water for irrigation. Whether using effluent, well, brackish, or city water, diffusing such gases as ozone (O3), oxygen (O2), and carbon dioxide (CO2) will improve the quality of lakes and ponds, irrigation water, and soil. Common golf course irrigation water issues such as high bacteria counts, high bicarbonates, lack of dissolved oxygen, and high pH levels can be eliminated with ozone, oxygen, and carbon dioxide diffusion. Ozone removes harmful contaminants and bacteria, and creates an aerobic environment that facilitates the decomposition of unwanted organic materials. Oxygen creates an aerobic environment in the soil, which, among other things, will increase percolation and root growth. Carbon Dioxide, when required, controls pH levels. With the proper gas diffusion system, golf courses can as stated substantially reduce the use of chemicals.
- Ozone kills algae, disease bacteria, mold, fungi, viruses, larvae, spores, etc.
- Extra oxygen aids good bacteria and reduces or eliminates having to aerate turf
- Cleans ponds to pristine condition and eliminates bad odors
- Reduces fertilizer usage by about 33%
- Eliminates use of algaecides and fungicides
- Can eliminate soggy turf areas by increasing percolation
- Completely automated; when water turns on, ozone system turns on
- Expected payback in less than two years
- Ability to claim "Environmentally Friendly Golf Course"
