Existing and potential haul routes should be inventoried. Many AWMS's require that wastes be transferred to fields for land application using equipment that can haul and spread the material. Although haul routes should be the shortest distance possible, roads should be located to avoid extreme cutting, filling, and potential erosion.
Where it is necessary to use public roads as haul routes, applicable State and local laws that govern their use must be followed. Use of public roads as haul routes requires that safety precautions be taken and hauling equipment that minimizes spillage and tracking of waste material, mud, and dirt be used. Aerial photographs and soil maps can be used to inventory haul routes.
