It was found that the fly ash incorporation in both soft and expansive soils decreased the hydraulic conductivity. Weathering of the soils resulted in the increase of the hydraulic conductivities. Also, it was seen that expansive soils had lower hydraulic conductivities than soft soils which is a better performance for being a low permeability barrier when stabilized with fly ash.After inspecting about 2, 000 levees nationwide, the Corps and FEMA recommended to boost up levee repair and reconstruction programs to protect properties worth billions of dollars from potential flood damage. The number of levees andanbsp;...
