STUDY: Impact of Soil Disturbance During Construction on Bulk Density and Infiltration in Ocean County, New Jersey

A study was conducted of undisturbed and disturbed urban soils in Ocean County, New Jersey, to investigate the impact on soil infiltration rates due to modification and compaction during construction operations, to examine if the effects are significant enough to alter the Hydrologic Soil Group (HSG) classification or Runoff Curve Number, and to provide additional guidance in the use of TR-55 for the design of structural stormwater management practices.
