state a fact about the project

Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) regulatory requirements, minimize project delays and help reduce long-term costs in vegetation development and management. To achieve these objectives, the researchers: (1) compared TxDOT’s practices to that of other state DOTs and related fields, (2) identified methods for more rapid vegetation establishment for meeting the TPDES requirements using field demonstration plots seeded according to current TxDOT practices, (3) developed a tool to assist design personnel not familiar with the vegetation establishment process-Vegetation Establishment Guidance for Decisions Assistance Tool (VEGDAT), (4) developed the Roadside Vegetation Establishment Quick Reference Field Guide, and (5) developed example district standard sheets for vegetation establishment.
