NEW LAND DRAINAGE SYSTEM SPEEDS SOIL CONSOLIDATION

An efficient and economic system for draining clay soil to induce settlement has been developed in Sweden. The system, called Geodrain, consists of a ribbed plastic strip enclosed in a paper sleeve of excellent wet strength. The Geodrain is more desireable than vertical sand drains, the previous method of land draining for several reasons. The former causes less horizontal surface movement, less reduction in soil shear strength, requires lighter weight equipment for installation, and does not need water to be installed.
