SOIL EROSION AND WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION
This manual which is designed to alert the county engineer to the various ways he can minimize soil erosion and attendent water pollution problems, discusses proper design as a prime consideration in alleviating those problems. Activites to be taken during preconstruction and construction phases of highway programs are specifically emphasized as well as maintenance procedures to be used to minimize soil erosion problems. The problem of winter salting and its impact upon the roadside environment are also discussed. This guide emphasized the uses of cover soil stabilization. Information on land surface covers that can be used, various seeding mixtures, and data which will aid in developing specifications for effective erosion control in contractual work are included in appendices.
