AEN-108
Permeable Pavement for Stormwater Management
7/26/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Carmen Agouridis, Joe Luck,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering
 Series: Agricultural Engineering (AEN series)
 Tags:

Managing runoff in urban areas offers many challenges for engineers, landscape architects, and planners. As cities grow, the amount of impermeable surfaces--those that do not allow water to infiltrate into the ground--increases. Examples of impervious surfaces are asphalt roads, concrete sidewalks, parking lots, building roofs, and areas of highly compacted soils such as in subdivisions. If not properly managed, the stormwater runoff produced by these impermeable surfaces can have negative effects on nearby surface waters.

AEN-106
Reducing Stormwater Pollution
7/15/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Carmen Agouridis, Joe Luck,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering
 Series: Agricultural Engineering (AEN series)
 Tags:

Stormwater is excess water from rainfall and snowmelts that flows over the ground and does not infiltrate the soil. It is a concern not just in urban areas but in suburban and agricultural locations as well. As stormwater runoff flows over the land or impervious surfaces, it picks up and transports trash and debris as well as pollutants such as pathogens, nutrients, sediments, heavy metals, and chemicals. This publication reviews some of these techniques and provides a list of recommended resources for additional information.

AEN-102
Basics of Automatic Section Control for Agricultural Sprayers
6/2/2011 (new)

 UK Authors: Joe Luck, Scott Shearer, Tim S
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering
 Series: Agricultural Engineering (AEN series)
 Tags:

The potential economic and environmental benefits of these systems are gaining the attention of producers and custom applicators looking to reduce their overall chemical costs. The purpose of this publication is to describe the basic operation and benefits of automatic section control systems.
