ANALYSIS OF SOLID WASTE MATERIALS IN HIGHWAY OPERATIONS

A survey of highway maintenance, construction operations and solid waste disposal methods was performed in 1973-77 to determine procedures that appear to have minimum environmental impacts on water quality. A field investigation was also performed at a field site where vegetative materials including trees, stumps and brush, were buried in a highway embankment. The study showed no adverse effects to groundwater.
