SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATION, SECTION L001, WASHINGTON CHANNEL L'ENFANT-PENTAGON RIVER CROSSING

Results are summarized of a series of 'shake-tests' performed on 12 samples from six borings in the Washington Channel portion of Section L001 of the L'Enfant-Pentagon River Crossing between southwest Washington and East Potomac Park, of the Washington Metropolitan Area Metro system. The investigation was made in order to satisfy requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency relating to constituents of the mix formed by disposal at sea of spoil dredged from the location of sunken tubes within Washington Channel. The report contains geological sections showing locations of these samples, results of chemical analysis of the 'shake tests' and a brief text summarizing the background of the investigation.
