    New Practice for Obtaining Rainfall Runoff from Unvegetated Rolled & Hydraulic Erosion Control Products (RECPs & HECPs) for Acute Ecotoxicity Testing

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.25 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK46490

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice establishes the guidelines, requirements, and procedures for obtaining rainfall runoff of unvegetated rolled and hydraulic erosion control products (RECPs & HECPs) during bench scale conditions from simulated rainfall to be sent out for acute ecotoxicity testing. 1.2 This practice obtains unvegetated erosion control product (ECP) runoff from rainsplash-induced erosion under bench-scale conditions using bench-scale collection procedures. 1.3 Units - The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.


    Keywords

    acute toxicity; ecotoxicity; erosion control product; rainfall simulation; runoff; slope

    Rationale

    No method exists. It will be used by DOTs and other agencies for product quality control and environmental approvals.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
