will be needed for site preparation. During site preparation, consider site restoration and environmental
impact. Make every effort not to disturb the site more than absolutely needed. If possible cut and fill
should be balanced on the site to facilitate site restoration. Depending on local conditions, dust
abatement may be required during setup. Attempts should be made to minimize removal of existing
grass and vegetation to reduce dust and erosion. Estimate the preparation time by following these steps.
(1) First gauge whether a site is "good," "fair," or "poor," by using Table 1-5 to determine
existing conditions. If your site does not fall entirely into one category, use your best judgment and
experience to estimate site preparation time.
