  • Rainfall events on urban compacted soils increase the volume and rate of stormwater runoff. A research study was conducted recently in North Carolina to investigate soil amendments to enhance infiltration into compacted soils. Sites were located in the coastal plain, piedmont, and mountain regions and the sites had sand, sandy clay, and sandy clay loam textured subsoils, respectively. The soil profiles were exhumed into the subsoils and compacted to simulate urban disturbed conditions. Physical… CONTINUE READING
