Abstract : The general purpose of this invention is to provide a method of soil stabilization that has all the advantages of similarly employed techniques and has none of the above described disadvantages. To attain this, the present invention provides a unique series of solutions for alternate application to the soil. The first water solution comprises one-two percent by weight of polyethylene oxide, and is applied to the soil at approximately 0.1 lb/sq yd and is followed by a second application of a 10-20 percent water solution of polyacrylic acid loaded to about 0.5 lb/sq yd.
