Competitive sorption of metals in water repellent soils: implications for irrigation recycled water



Competitive sorption of metals in water repellent soils: implications for irrigation recycled water



Australian Journal of Soil Research 43(3): 351-356



Australia is a water-stressed nation and demand on potable water supply is increasing. Consequently water conservation and reuse are increasingly becoming important. Irrigation of recycled wastewater on water repellent soils is a technology that is being trialled as a means of improving crop production and conserving potable supply. However, recycled water contains potentially harmful heavy metals.
