The research has involved the development and evaluation of an efficient, economical, continuous subsurface injection machine. The application site was instrumented so the quality of water percolating beneath the injection zone could be measured. Wells located around the sites were used to monitor groundwater quality. Soil samples were taken periodically to determine nutrients, salts, heavy metal concentrations, and bacteria movement and survival. Major environmental problems were increased soil salinity and movement of fecal coliform to the groundwater. Both of these problems can be eliminated by proper management and site selection. Subsurface injection is economically feasible when compared with other methods of land application.
