Abstract: This interim report summarizes the results of soils investigations of the bank slope failures at the Reid Bedford Bend revetment. The studies are continuing, and conclusions presented in this appendix are tentative and subject to revision, if necessary, as more data become available. This appendix is concerned with a discussion of soil conditions at the site, ruled in particular with the actual mechanics of the failures which have occurred. The early and recent history of developments in Reid Bedford Bend and vicinity has been presented in Volume 1 of this report.
