Dams and Reservoirs

Scope and Content

This series comprises research data on various aspects of the design and construction of dams and reservoirs. The data particularly concerns radial flows to wells and dewatering bore-holes, falling head permeability tests on piezometers, dam design details and reservoir clays. There are also notes on sample clays from Derwent Reservoir and elsewhere.


The papers were found loose, and were sorted by Mr John Scriven.
