All water used at DLF Golf and Country Club for non-human consumption needs – construction, irrigation, watering and filling of lakes is “recycled” water provided by a massive STP (Sewage Treatment Plant) at DLF5. This ultra-modern plant has the capacity to provide 14 million litres per day (MLD) of recycled water. Waste collected from DLF5’s condominiums is treated at this STP which is equipped with an Ultra-filtration plant for very high quality of recycled water. Apart from this, water is used “efficiently” at the golf courses through use of latest technology which reduces consumption to minimum. Some of these practices are as follows
-Use of hand syringing to provide accurate water distribution and minimize losses
-Effective use of over head irrigation using automated irrigation systems which allow us to irrigate at times which will provide the best use of water and reduce losses due to wind and evaporation.
-The use of latest technology enables accurate and precise irrigation applications and minimize wastage
-The ability to apply adequate amounts of water based on field measurements to maintain soil moisture and plant health and minimize water loss and misuse.
-Correct irrigation practices promote healthy turf which require less pesticide inputs and in turn resulting in a healthier environment
