City of Davis Manganese Study

soil analysis waste discharge permit wastewater Agriculture Water Resources Salinity & Nutrients

Land IQ conducted a study to determine the relationship between site-specific manganese levels in irrigation water and agricultural soils. The investigation included sampling a range of soil types, and interpreting results from soil analysis to determine the relationship between manganese and soil characteristics such as pH, texture, and other nutrient interactions. This information was used to fulfill the requirements of the discharge permit under which the City of Davis discharges treated wastewater into Willow Slough and the Yolo bypass. The wastewater treatment plant operated by the City of Davis in Davis, CA, collects wastewater from residents of Davis, California and two unincorporated areas in Yolo County.
