    Revision of D3404 - 91(2004) Standard Guide for Measuring Matric Potential in Vadose Zone Using Tensiometers

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3404 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.21 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Standard was balloted on D18(11-01) and received negatives that were addressed and the standard was again balloted on D18 (12-01)receiving two negatives. The negatives were addressed with editorial changes and withdrawn, however ASTM Editing feels the changes are more than edits and has requested another ballot. This work item will be to address the editors concerns. A request for a concurrent ballot will be submitted to the D18 Chairman.
