Reclaiming the grass at Pebble Beach golf course

Tertiary treatment of wastewater has had a technology upgrade to improve play at Pebble Beach golf course, which recently hosted the US Open Championship. The problem was high sodium and total dissolved solids concentrations, and difficulties with reusing wastewater during low flows.

Microfiltration followed by RO was selected to meet the water quality criteria. The project has improved the health of the turf grass and eliminated the need for supplemental flushing of the greens, saving up to 470,000 m³/year of potable water.
