The study will consist of as few as five, or as many as nine exploratory holes drilled in the foundation of the dam to sample the foundation materials and collect ground water data. Each hole will be fitted with a piezometer to monitor the fluctuations of ground water over time. A test trench will be excavated to collect ground water, density data and collect samples for laboratory analysis. The trench will be back filled upon completion of the data collection.
