Moll, Jeffry E.. 1999. Minimizing Low Volume Road Water Displacement. 9977 1804P. Water/Road Interaction Technology Series: Volume Issue . San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 29 p.
This paper discusses water/road interaction in terms of surface water concentrations on road segments and subsurface flows intercepted by road cuts. Background information on low volume road influences on hydrology is followed by a summary of existing methods for minimizing related water concentrations and flow distances away from the road corridor. The notion of water displacement due to low volume road segments is introduced, as is the philosophy of proper drainage provision. Examples detailing these ideas appear in the appendix. Some new concepts and uses of emerging products for minimizing the water displacement and attaining proper drainage provision are presented.
