MANAGERIAL ASPECTS OF A CHEMICAL REDUCTION PROGRAM

INCREASING PUBLIC PRESSURES ON THE USE OF CHEMICALS ON ROADWAYS HAS CAUSED A REASSESSMENT OF THE TECHNIQUES IN CONTROLLING USAGE. PREVIOUS CONTROLS WERE DESIGNED PRIMARILY TO ACHIEVE A ROAD CONDITION. NEW TECHNIQUES SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO PRODUCE LEVELS OF SERVICE WITH A MINIMUM OF CHEMICALS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A REPORTING SYSTEM TO OBTAIN THIS OBJECTIVE IS DISCUSSED, AND CONCLUSIONS ARE MADE ON THE SUCCESS OF THE VARIOUS MANAGERIAL DEVICES USED. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN SOME OF THE MOST PROMISING AREAS ARE GIVEN WHEREVER POSSIBLE. FULL ANALYSIS OF COST FACTORS WAS BEYOND THE SCOPE OF THIS INVESTIGATION. /AUTHOR/
