Introduction: The Board for Utilization of Soils Data for Levees was established by Special Orders No. 79-1/2, dated 26 September 1945, issued by M. C. Tyler, Brigadier General, Corps of Engineers, President, Mississippi River Commission. The mission of this Board was to make a complete review of current practices and technique in order to bring up to date the Mississippi River Commission soils mechanics and levee code which was developed by a similar Board in October 1941. The Board convened on 8 November 1945 and three subcommittees, namely, Planning, Design and Construction, and Exploration and Testing, were appointed to make a study of practices from 1941 to the present, in order that the 1941 code could be brought up to date. The three committees have convened in numerous meetings since 8 November 1945 and after consideration of the numerous problems involved since adoption of the 1941 code recommend certain general policies with respect to planning, exploration, testing, design, and construction of main line Mississippi River levees, and the application of the same general principles to other levees, insofar as may appear practicable and necessary.
