Abstract : A sumary is given of the status, personnel, and activities of the field laboratories of the Bureau of Reclamation for the calendar year 1962. The earth and concrete control laboratories are established primarily to provide (1) construction control during the construction of specific features. However, field laboratory facilities and personnel are often used for other related functions, such as (2) foundation and materials explorations for reconnaissance, feasibility, and specifications designs for other features in the immediate vicinity, and (3) laboratory personnel are often required for other, but related, activities of a technical or scientific nature. Land classification laboratories are operated primarily to provide information as quickly as possible to land classification survey parties regarding physical and chemical properties of the soil. All land classification laboratories provide analytical data needed for project drainage evaluations and/or construction of drainage systems. No attempt has been made to separate drainage investigation costs from the land classification survey costs. (Author)
