Environmental Thrust Handbook.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC.
This handbook was prepared as a tool to assist U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees coordinate their resources and efforts to help people improve their environment. Twenty-two projects are outlined as potential environmental thrusts at the community level. It is the role of USDA employees to encourage and assist, in every way possible, as each community develops its own environmental thrusts. Projects are titled: Safe Drinking Water, Sanitary Landfills, Trash and Junk Removal, Sewage Disposal for Farm Home and Rural Community, Animal Waste Disposal, Land Use Planning, Landscape Improvement, Protecting the Landscape, Pesticide Safety, Safeguard Food Quality, Reducing Environmental Degradation by the Marketing System, Disposal of Pesticide Wastes and Containers, Improving Recreational Resources, Improving Rural Housing, Noise Reduction, Controlling Ticks in Recreational Areas, Controlling Poison Ivy--Oak--Sumac, Controlling Aquatic Weeds, Brush Control, Controlling Poisonous Plants, Controlling Ragweed, and Controlling Yellow Jackets in the Western United States. Each project briefly covers the situation and problem, objectives, a possible work plan, criteria for evaluating effectiveness, and available resources, noting both government and nongovernment assistance available. Services of 17 agriculture-related agencies are reviewed at the end. (BL)
