Abstract: A condition survey was performed at DePere Lock and Dam on the Lower Fox River, Wisconsin. The field investigation included drilling for core samples of concrete, foundation rock, and backfill. Selected specimens of these materials were tested in the laboratory for certain physical and mechanical properties. Results of the field investigation and laboratory tests indicated that the concrete in the lock and dam is locally cracked and lightly deteriorated but structurally sound. Cycles of freezing and thawing have caused the concrete deterioration. The lock and dam is founded on competent bedrock. No soft or otherwise weak zones were detected in the bedrock. Soundings should be made to detect any scouring behind the dam. It is suggested that the reinforcing steel in the tainter gate piers, adjacent to the hinge pins, be examined for corrosion.
