Guidelines for municipal wastewater irrigation

Description

The previous guidelines on wastewater irrigation entitled, A practical guide to Municipal Wastewater Irrigation - Discussions and Guidelines, was first published by Alberta Environment in June, 1984. These guidelines were intended for the use of municipalities considering irrigation as a method for disposal of wastewater. After fifteen years, the focus of the program remains the same, i.e. wastewater irrigation is agriculturally beneficial and environmentally acceptable provided effective management practices are adopted and followed. The new guideline contains the procedures that must be followed in developing and managing wastewater irrigation projects, including wastewater quality characterization, land unit suitability factors, soil and vegetation loading limitations, and various irrigation system design considerations.
