First-year evaluation of low-level waste-management stabilization techniques

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The first year of observation for effectiveness of biobarriers and herbicides in revegetation efforts demonstrated that certain practices will result in successful site stabilization: proper orientation of burial trench to reduce erosion; utilization of mulches to conserve moisture; seeding mixed perennial or annual grass species at the proper time for optimization of establishment and growth; and applying 2,4-D amine/Dicamba selective herbicide at the optimum time for enhancement of disirable grasses and reduction of competition from other species. The ultimate success or failure of a revegetation operation depends in part on the availability of equipment and manpower, weather conditions, and engineering ... continued below

Description

The first year of observation for effectiveness of biobarriers and herbicides in revegetation efforts demonstrated that certain practices will result in successful site stabilization: proper orientation of burial trench to reduce erosion; utilization of mulches to conserve moisture; seeding mixed perennial or annual grass species at the proper time for optimization of establishment and growth; and applying 2,4-D amine/Dicamba selective herbicide at the optimum time for enhancement of disirable grasses and reduction of competition from other species. The ultimate success or failure of a revegetation operation depends in part on the availability of equipment and manpower, weather conditions, and engineering feasibility. The data indicated that perennial grasses offered advantages over annual grasses and that the 2,4-D amine/Dicamba herbicide spray program was successful and should be expanded for next year. However, programmatic decisions should not be based on the data for 1 year, but should be based on data gathered over the full 3 years of the project.
