PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION OF A PROPOSED DAM SITE ALONG RIVER OME, AGO IWOYE SOUTH WESTERN NIGERIA (2012)

Soil investigation was carried out at a proposed dam site across River Ome in Ago Iwoye, southwestern Nigeria to investigate the depth to bedrock, possible geologic structures, foundation conditions of the dam axis, abutments and choice of best location for construction of dam.Six Vertical Electrical Soundings (VES) were carried along the river course and this was done using Schlumberger configuration. Evaluation of the engineering properties of the soil was carried out for twelve samples collected across the river using Atterberg limit, grain size analysis, California Bearing Ratio (CBR) and compaction characteristics of the soils.
