Abstract

This project discusses and evaluates different dam foundation improvement techniques including two different positive cut-off walls, grouting, and a combination of these. These techniques were evaluated based on four different evaluation criteria: cost, environmental impacts, risk and constructability. A schematic design was created based on the most suitable foundation improvement. This report is intended to supply Stantec Consulting Services Inc. in Lexington, Kentucky with evaluation criteria that can be used at Lock and Dam No. 8 and other similar structures.
