Description

This manual provides guidance on geotechnical/geological investigation requirements for miscellaneous nonhydraulic and hydraulic structures. The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has developed numerous guidance documents for design and construction of large water conveyance facilities, such as dams, pumping plants, powerplants, canals, and pipelines. This manual will use small examples from those larger design manuals, but the reader is encouraged to consult these manuals for more information.
