A type of tertiary treatment for removal of phosphate from a effluent is to irrigate an area of land. The degree of treatment obtained will depend upon the soil characteristics and upon the. management of the vegetative cover. A better procedure to evaluate the effect of a given soil type on the removal of phosphate has been develcped. The procedure would indicate both the maximum phosphate removal capacity of the soils in an area to be used for irrigation with phosphate laden waters, and the maximum ground water pollution hazard with respect to phosphate that would exist in such an area if no special care was taken in applying the effluent. The phosphate concentrations likely to occur from contamination of groundwater in such a manner could be highly detrimental to a surface water body which received flow from the groundwater...
