Abstract: This appendix presents the results of the subsurface investigations, laboratory work, and subsequent Geotechnical analysis and design for each major feature of the Rio Culebrinas flood control project. The study area is located on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico between the community of Espinar and the town of Aguadilla. The main feature of this flood control project will be the construction of two separate levee segments identified as Aguadilla and Espinar and the proposed drainage structures passing through them. These levees will cross three existing highways and as a result, two road ramps will be required along the alignment of the Aguadilla levee and one along the alignment of the Espinar levee. A short "cutoff" channel is also proposed to mitigate the impact of the Aguadilla levee crossing two oxbows of the Cano Madre Vieja channel. All stationing is in meters . For clarity, various measurements and other engineering properties will be reported in English units with the metric equivalent following in parentheses.
