Wildfire's Green Thumb
Course Green Accomplishments:
- Over 322 million gallons of potable water have been saved each year with the use of effluent water.
- The irrigation lake is lined with a thick plastic polyurethane liner to prevent water seepage.
- Four oxygen diffusers were installed to help water quality and lake health after switching to effluent water.
- In 2000, Wildfire established a no-spray zone and limited fertilizing turf grass around the lake to prevent nutrient load and run off.
- White Amur, Koi, and Catfish were stocked for biological control of algae.
- Fertilizer and pesticide equipment are calibrated to prevent misapplication, and maintenance equipment is maintained and cleaned in a manner that eliminates the potential for on-site or off-site contamination of water bodies.
- Achieved certification by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses.
