Description: Potamology Report
Introduction: The investigation to determine the possibility of flow slides at Kempe Bend revetment extension, located on the west bank of the Mississippi River near Waterproof, Louisiana, was begun in August 1950 while bank grading and revetting operations (by the Vicksburg District) were in progress. Several bank failures occurring during the month of September 1950, as discussed later, afforded an opportunity to correlate bank conditions with stability. The investigation included undisturbed sand borings and cone penetrometer tests, and laboratory density tests.
