Preface: The study reported herein is one of a number of similar studies of the construction and behavior, from a foundation and soil mechanics standpoint, of recently completed structures in the Lower Mississippi Valley Division. These studies are being conducted for the Engineering Division, Mississippi River Commission, by the Waterways Experiment Station. The drainage and relief well system for the St. Johns Bayou floodgate structure was designed for the Mississippi River Commission by the Waterways Experiment Station. The structure itself was designed by the Mississippi River Commission and built under the supervision of the Memphis District, Corps of Engineers. It was completed 1 April 1953. Installation data and observations made to June 1955 of engineering measurement devices installed at the structure summarized in this report. It is planned to continue observations of these devices and of the condition of relief wells installed at the structure, and to report any significant data obtained in the form of appendices to this report. Data on construction procedures and engineering measurement devices were furnished by Messrs. J. W. Black, J. J. Patridge, and J. M. Pollock of the Memphis District, and Messrs. C. I. Mansur, T. B. Goode, and A. L. Mathews of the Waterways Experiment Station. The report was prepared by Mr. R. c. Sloan and reviewed and approved prior to publication by Messrs. w. J. Turnbull, W. G. Shockley, c.
