Yongtao Cao of the Mathematics Department recently co-authored “Microbial assessments of soil with a 40-year history of reclaimed wastewater irrigation” in the Elsevier journal Science of the Total Environment.

The paper will appear in print, but is now available online through Science Direct

Cao and his colleagues show that no significant influence of reclaimed wastewater on soil microbial quantity was observed. There was also a positive influence of reclaimed wastewater on vegetable yield.
