Abstract:

In 1950 an experimental relief well system was installed along the land-side toe of the Mississippi River main-line levee at Trotters Levee Mile 54, Miss., by the U. S. Army Engineer District, Memphis, to provide a facility for investigating a control of underseepage by means of relief wells, and b performance of relief wells over an extended period of time. This report Appendix K presents a description of well cleaning operations and pumping tests conducted in 1969. The well pumping test data were analyzed in order that the yields of the pump-tested wells could be compared with those obtained after installation. Photographs of well screens obtained in 1969 with the borehole TV camera are included for several selected wells.
