What is a Seepage Analysis?
Seepage Analysis is primarily concerned with water leaking from a contained source, generally a tank, a pool, a dam or similar structures, into the surrounding soil. It involves identifying the source of the leak and designing a solution to rectify the problem.
Why is a Seepage Analysis Important?
Water leaking from a contained source may seem harmless, but continuous leakage of water into the surround soil weakens the soil structure and may lead to soil liquefaction where a soil is so saturated with water it begins to behave like a liquid and thus losing its bearing capacity. For this reason, it is critical that a qualified geotechnical engineer perform a seepage analysis.
