Abstract:

A series of surface geophysical investigations were conducted at Clearwater Dam, Missouri, to supplement a U.S. Army Engineer District, Little Rock, comprehensive seepage study. This report compiles the effects of two field exercises performed to delineate paths or zones of seepage through the left abutment materials. Procedural details and test results are presented for earth resistivity, spontaneous potential, and refraction seismic surveys, individually and collectively as appropriate to demonstrate the effectiveness of the methods in locating flowing water in subsurface materials at this site.
