WATER QUALITY IMPACTS ASSOCIATED WITH LEACHATES FROM HIGHWAY WOODWASTES EMBANKMENTS
The installation of woodwaste fills, according to current design in Washington, involves excavation of native material and old roadway, usually to below the groundwater table. Important considerations in the design are long-term stability and potential environmental impacts associated with woodwaste instead of native material. The deterioration of the woodwaste results directly in release of water pollutants. The report describes the pollutants monitored from these woodwaste fills.
