Municipal wastewater from the City of Tallahassee, Florida, which has received secondary treatment was used to demonstrate the effectiveness of wastewater renovation without pollution of groundwater or surface water through land application to forage crops by sprinkler irrigation. Five summer and two winter forage crops were grown with applied wastewater at rates up to 200 and 100 mm per week, respectively. Vegetation was harvested at appropriate stages of growth and evaluated for yield response, forage quality, and nutrient removal. Groundwater chemical characteristics were measured in wells located in the irrigated fields and compared with off-site control wells and the applied wastewater. Soil samples were collected from several plots at various depths through time to characterize the change in soil properties in relation to chemical processes and crop production.
