dc.description.abstractPast experience has indicated a major problem exists in the area of dike construction for dredged material containment areas. Frequent dike failures have been reported along with problems associated with high maintenance requirements. These problems can usually be traced to inadequate design and construction practices compounded by very poor site conditions. Site conditions will continue to be poor, but this in itself indicates the need for more comprehensive planning and design efforts along with improved construction practices. This report presents recommendations for proper investigation, design, and construction of retaining dikes to aid in ensuring that these dikes will he constructed with a minimum of problems and will serve their project requirements. Raising of existing dikes is covered as well as construction of new dikes. Recommendations are based on a survey of past Corps of Engineers design and construction practices for retaining dikes and current state-of-the-art design procedures for construction of earth embankments.en_US
