Sulfate In Irrigation Water - Knowledgebase Question

We have recently drilled a well. The water analysis came back with a warning of Sulfate concentration at 282mg/l. We wish to use this well water for irrigation for yard and garden plants. This is new landscaping. Will this sulfate concentration cause soil toxicity, if so, is there a method of treatment?

There are methods available for removing sulfate from water, however you might wish to check with your county extension (722-7211) about the effects and advisability of using the well water as is on plantings as well as their recommendations for any treatments.
