Contents Notes
"During the 3-year period from October 1976 to 1979, comprehensive chemical, biological, climatological, and engineering studies were conducted at Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, to determine effectiveness of pesticide disposal facilities being used at the school and to compare controlled systems that might provide a basis for improvement. Evaluation of the pit disposal systems included detailed chemical sampling of the systems and their surrounding environments, identification and counts of bacterial populations, entomological studies, estimation of pesticide volatilization rates, and evaluation of pit design for efficiency, effectiveness, and convenience of operation."
