Greers Ferry Dam, a concrete gravity structure with two earth dike sections, is located on the Little Red River in Central Arkansas. The Waterways Experiment Station WES was requested by the Little Rock District to review the design of Greers Ferry Dam from a soils and foundation standpoint. All data were furnished by the Little Rock District. In addition, a field inspection of the damsite was made by representatives of WES. The review has been completed and the comments presented herein concern those features of the geology, soil conditions, and stability computations which may have bearing on the stability of the dike sections of the dam.
