1. The Madison Limestone is an important aquifer. Citizens are concerned about gas or A
chemical trucks overturning on roads and causmg contamination. What is the total length 0!
roads crossing the Madison, in kilometers?
2. The infiltration rate of the geological substrate is a strong factor in evaluating the spill
I hazards for roads. Create a map of all the roads based on the infiltration capacity of the
geology, using appropriate symbols to indicate hazard. Capture your map.
3. The use of a road is another factor in evaluating spill hazard. Create a field containing a
hazard rating for each road based on both infiltration and use. For use, give primary roads a
value of 3, secondary roads 2, and primitive roads 1. What is the range of values for the
index? Create a map of the roads based on the hazard index. Capture the map.
Rangeland can cause significant impacts on surface water quality. Using the Iulc and
a 5 ‘ ‘wsheds2b feature classes, create a table showing the area of rangeland in each watershed.
f , (Include both herbaceous and mixed rangeland categories.)
Areas that are Within 300 meters of both streams and primitive roads are the most popular
places for fishing. Create a map showing these areas. Capture your map.
grfiishing areas in #5 should be restricted to areas Within the national forest (OWER
NFS’ in the vegetation feature class). Create a rev1sed map showmg the public access
areas in green and the private fishing areas in red. Capture your map.
