A growing number of scientists believe that using wastewater to irrigate crops is an effective way to reduce soil deterioration and restore soil nutrient content. Following long-term irrigation with wastewater, this study examined soil and ground water composition. Organic carbon (OC), manganese (Mn), iron (Fe), sodium (Na), copper (Cu), total alkalinity (TA) and zinc (Zn) were found in soil samples collected at the surface and 30 cm below the surface. Due to salt and poisonous metal concentrations from wastewater application to soil, it is vital to study the long-term impacts of wastewater concentration on soil salinity and toxic metal concentrations.
