    The single-section method will generally yield less re liable results because it requires more judgment and assumptions than the step-backwater method. In many situations, however, the single-section method is all that is justified, e.g., standa rd roadway ditches, culverts and st orm drain outfalls. Design analysis of both natural and man-made channels proceeds according to the basic. An assessment of the existing channel is usually necessary to determine the potential for problems that might result from a proposed action. The detail of studies necessary should be commensurate with the risk associated with the action and with the environmental sensitivity of the stream and adjoining flood plain (See Section ).

    FHWA requires consideration of mitigation for highway traffic noise in the planning and design of Federally aided highways. These regulations establish standards for abating highway traffic noise. Compliance with the noise regulations is a prerequisite for the granting of Federal-aid highway funds for construction or reconstruction of a highway.

    Chapter 2 introduces these materials and some of their basic properties. Specific physical and chemical properties of rocks and soils are important in considering such diverse topics as resource identification and recovery, waste disposal, assessment of volcanic or landslide hazards, weathering processes and soil formation, and others.

Transportation activities including maintenance are affected by a variety of requirements and initiatives related to the management, disposal, and recycling of wastes. A wide range of maintenance practices are aimed at reusing and recycling materials, from solvent recovery to reuse of structural steel from damaged bridges.

Bridges in Alaska are routinely subjected to harsh weather conditions, earthquakes, and usually located in remote areas.

Maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement of Alaska’s bridges in a cost effective manner depend critically on reliable inspection and condition assessment. These inspections are both costly and time consuming.

Road Transport and Highways Status of ground water resources. Two methods of assessment were used with the case study. The field trip was conducted with a group of evaluators that included science educators, earth science teachers and geologists.

Their evaluations served as a basis for revision of the field trip prior to-its being used with an earth science class.Chapter 4 also provides guidance in interpreting the results of the quantitative analysis to identify the nature of the hazard (i.e., flooding erosion or sedimentation) to developed properties along the arroyo, and methods of identifying appropriate methods to mitigate those hazards.
