Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract: Seepage analyses and seepage control measures for structures such as dams, levees, etc, require data on permeability of sand strata involved; laboratory tests on remolded sand samples are compared with data from field pumping tests in which permeabilities of individual sand strata were determined from drawdown curves and measured flow from strata.
