The last review of this document was August, 1994. The task force was reformed and the entire document was reviewed for current practices. Minor changes were made for previous typos. The new areas identified that need to be addressed with further research are new corrosion tests due to the new chemicals that are being used on the roadways and a second test alternative to be added for a higher pressure spray. When the work is completed it will be incorporated into the document via the proper procedures.
