Abstract : In 1950 an experimental relief well system was installed along the landside toe of the levee at Trotters (Mi 54), Mississippi to study the control of underseepage by means of relief well and the performance of a well system over a extended period of time. Appendix D contains the analysis and summary of piezometric and well flow data obtained during the high water of March-April 1955. Appendix E presents the description and analysis of pumping tests made on selected wellsduring February and March 1957 to compare the yield of certain wells with that obtained in 1950 when the wells were installed.
