SOIL EROSION AND DUST CONTROL ON ARIZONA HIGHWAYS: PART IV. FINAL 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 spray-on application to control erosion and dust behind traffic. Three chemicals were also used on the 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. Results indicate availability of several chemicals that proved successful in controlling dust on untrafficable areas. Only two chemical treatments proved successful to control dust on unpaved roads.
