Video: Geotechnical investigations in levee repairs

There’s a critical question that engineers face when designing new levee setbacks or repairs to existing structures: What’s beneath my feet? See how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a variety of technologies to determine the soil classifications in a given area in a timely and cost efficient manner. That information will help determine the best path and design for these critical flood control structures. Video by Kevin Wingert, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District.
