Title: Difficult land reclamation and reseeding if high SAR water is applied to routes.
Text: Water Management: Beneficial Use: Dust Control: "... If operators continuously apply high SAR [sodium adsorption ratio] water to access routes and unpaved areas, future land reclamation and reseeding problems may arise. Further complications such as increased soil erosion could arise if the water is applied too frequently or at high rates."
