Reducing Nitrogen Loadings from Golf Courses

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description The U. S. Golf Association, Cornell University, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County, Peconic Estuary Program, EPA Region 2, NYS DEC, and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, are organizing a meeting to discuss the management of nitrogen applications on golf courses on November 13, 2003, in Riverhead, New York. The Agencies and organization are focused on Eastern Long Island's golf courses due to concern for the ecological health of the Peconic Estuary and neighboring surface waters. These waters are impaired or threatened due to nitrogen loadings from multiple sources. Working with golf courses is part of a larger pollution prevention effort in the area. The Peconic Estuary Program is also actively working with the municipal, marine, agricultural and residential sectors of Eastern Long Island to achieve an overall reduction in nitrogen loading.
