Abstract : Description of the geology of the Gallipolis Locks and Dam site and a discussion of how the existing foundation conditions is the purpose of this report. The Gallipolis Locks and Dam is on the Ohio River at mile 279.2 near the town of Gallipolis, Ohio. Geologically, the area lies in the Kanawha section of the Appalachian Plateau Physiographic Province. The Pennsylvanian Age Rocks are mostly sandstones, shales, claystones, coals and sillstones. The principal features of the project are two adjacent, parallel lock chambers constructed as conventional concrete gravity-wall structures founded on rock. The report describes in detail the procedures used to establish foundation grades, and to excavate and treat the foundations. Pertinent correspondence relating to foundation conditions along with typical foundation treatment photographs is included. Geologic cross sections, foundation treatment profiles and boring logs are part of this report.
