Description: The disposal of sewage effluent by irrigation is receiving increased interest among farmers as well as civic authorities in the Canadian Prairie Provinces. In addition to agricultural benefits from the use of sewage effluent as a source of water and nutrients, effluent irrigation as an alternative to tertiary treatment may be the most economical disposal for treated sewage effluent from a municipality (McKim et al. 1979 Oldham 1979). In 1973, a pilot project was initiated at the Swift Current Research Station in cooperation with the City of Swift Current to examine the suitability of using sewage effluent as a source of irrigation water. The relatively high content of salt in the Swift Current sewage effluent was a major concern.

Keywords: soil salinity: effluent irrigation vs. creek water irrigation
