GROUNDWATER INVESTIGATION AND CONTROL IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION: PART 2

Part 1 (IRRD no 221651) contained descriptions of some groundwater treatments in the planning, execution and interpretation of site investigations for highway projects. In part 2, the authors consider the possible methods of groundwater control required both during construction and as permanent drainage on completion of the works. Various methods of control, both temporary and permanent, are described, and information in tabulated form provides data on method, soils suitable for treatment, uses, advantages and disadvantages. In conclusion the authors state that all aspects of drainage should be considered together and not in isolation, and that the designed drainage system should be capable of modification to suit the conditions encountered in situ during construction of the works. /TRRL/
