One inch of rain falling on one acre of ground equals: 27,154 gallons, which weighs 113 tons. A Grassed Waterway- Grass waterways are a type of conservation buffer, designed to prevent soil erosion while draining runoff water from adjacent cropland. As water travels down the waterway, the grass vegetation prevents erosion that would otherwise result from concentrated flows. Grass waterways also help prevent gully erosion in areas of concentrated flow. A -The best way for Brenda & Justin to deal with their trash is to take it with them when they leave and throw it away in a trash can. Packing the trash and throwing it away later will ensure that the campsite is left clean for the next people who use it. It also ensures that the trash won't get eaten by wildlife or pollute a nearby stream or lake. (Although burning some of the trash like paper would do little harm, burning plastics can release toxic fumes into the atmosphere. Even though the campsite would appear clean if Brenda and Justin buried their trash, the trash could be dug up by wildlife and strewn about the area. Even if the trash remains buried, it could take many years to break down into soil.)
