The holes were backfilled after installation. All tips were connected with plastic tubes to gages in a terminal well at station 54+00, 183.5 feet downstream from the axis of the dam. A terminal well is shown in figure 38. Pressures in the embankment are transmitted from the tip through the water-filled plastic tubes, and observed on the gage.
62. Settlement Installations. - An embankment settlement system was installed in a test pit at station 53+00, 99 feet upstream from the dam axis. The lowest crossarm of the system was placed on shale bedrock at about elevation 2649. Backfill was completed around the riser pipe from this crossarm at about elevation 2707, and nine additional crossarm units were placed at 5-foot intervals to the surface of the completed embankment.
Two standard-type foundation base plates (fig. 39) were installed at stations 15+00 and 21+00, 20 feet upstream from the axis, on the unconsolidated loessial foundation in the abutment of the dam. Also, four temporary plates, each consisting of a steel plate and riser pipe extending to the surface of the embankment, were installed at the following locations and elevations:
After the embankment had been completed above a plate, the plate was located by drilling and an access pipe was installed to the surface of the dam.
A total of 173 surface settlement points were installed at 200-foot intervals on the surface of the embankment and parallel to the dam axis (fig. 40). These points consist of 3/4- to 1-inch reinforcement bars ranging in length from 5 to 8 feet. These bars were driven flush with the ground surface and a concrete collar, approximately 15 inches thick and 15 inches in diameter, was placed around each bar within 3 inches from the top. As concrete was placed, the bars were alined and the upper end of each bar was center punched.
Shallow holes were drilled near the edges of the spillway floor slab and wall footing for use in determining elevations. The elevation of each hole was obtained by means of a level and leveling rod.
In the canal outlet works, a series of 3/8-inch-diameter brass bolts with round heads were placed at 25-foot stations in the invert for use in determining settlement. Vertical control was obtained with the aid of two permanent monuments located on the line center of the canal outlet works.
