Simple Assessment Techniques for Soil and Water. Environmental Factors in Small Scale Development Projects. Workshops.
Coordination in Development, New York, NY.
This booklet was produced in response to the growing need for reliable environmental assessment techniques that can be applied to small-scale development projects. The suggested techniques emphasize low-technology environmental analysis. Although these techniques may lack precision, they can be extremely valuable in helping to assure the success of small-scale development projects. Tests that deal with significant features of soil and water are discussed. These include: (1) soil pH; (2) soil texture; (3) percolation; (4) dissolved minerals; (5) sodium in water; and (6) coliform bacteria. Each test contains background information, a materials list, suggested procedures and an interpretation section. A field practice data sheet and a situation data sheet are also included. (ML)
