Need for better geologic input for drainage projects

Need for better geologic input for drainage projects

Eleventh Congress on Irrigation and Drainage Part 2: 497-510

Two case histories in the San Joaquin Valley, California, are used to illustrate the importance of data in the fields of geochemistry and site-specific geology. The first deals with swelling of clayey alluvium due to crystallization of mirabilite (Glaubers salt) at relatively low (usually above 0 deg C) winter temperatures. The process resulted in severe cracking of 6.25 cm (2.5 inches) thick concrete sidelining of a major drainage canal.
