Report No: 73-R51

Published in 1974

About the report:

A manual was prepared for use in estimating soil losses and designing adequate abatement structures along the ditch lines of roadways. These tasks were to be accomplished by a computer program intended to be used on the IBM Model 370 computer. The manual was intended for use by personnel of the Location and Design Division and Environmental Quality Division as part of the initial phases of planning and design and by environmental personnel at the district level for updating control structures as construction progressed or for maintenance of the structures.
