The slurry wall method provides control of seepage and percolation into open cuts and permits construction of deep concrete retaining walls before excavation of basement or subway areas is started. In the case of the Archer Street subway, the soil is predominantly sand, which is difficult to excavate between neat lines. The slurry wall was selected to contain the sand, which otherwise might slide, and to provide needed support of buildings abutting the street.
