Document Type: Journal Paper


An alternative to the necessity of dewatering wet foundations for construction of small runoff measuring weirs is presented. The method is particularly adapted to soils so fine that conventional well point systems are unsatisfactory. Details of construction are outlined. The main wall consisted of a row of steel sheet piling capped with a prefabricated steel crest. The stilling basin was outlined with corrugated steel sheeting and filled with large boulders.
