SOIL EROSION AND DUST CONTROL ON ARIZONA HIGHWAYS: PART III. PROGRESS REPORT - FIELD TESTING PROGRAM
Several chemical stabilizers were selected for use in a large scale field application, based on a laboratory testing program. Spray-on application of chemicals to control dust and wind erosion on untrafficable areas were made using eleven chemicals. Five chemicals were used on an unpaved road using a mixed-in application. Methods of field application are given. Details of monitoring techniques including HiVol dust collection, dust fall collection in cups, and extraction tests are discussed. Preliminary observations comparing the chemical applications among themselves and as compared to control sections, where water was used, are given. Evaluation will continue for approximately 12 months more.
