Zeynep Erdogan, Tony Wahl. 2008. "Results of Laboratory Physical Properties and Hole Erosion Tests, Truckee Canal Embankment Breach, Newlands Project, Nevada". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number PAP-975.

Abstract: Hole erosion tests and submerged jet erosion tests were performed on undisturbed and remolded soil samples obtained from the site of the January 2008 piping-initiated breach of the Truckee Canal embankment near Fernley, Nevada. Tests results were used to evaluate the erodibility of the materials and compare them to the erodibility of soils used recently conducted large-scale piping breach tests at the USDA-ARS hydraulics laboratory in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
