Paper Title:
A Backfill Clay Method for Small Earth Dam’s Anti-Seepage and Reinforcement Engineering
  Abstract

A backfill clay method which is often adopted in small earth dam’ anti-seepage and reinforcement engineering has been introduced, and its using experiences in Zhejiang province, east of china, has been summarized. The design and construction process using the method has both been represented in the paper, with several technical difficulties had been selectively discussed. Application in hundreds of dams during the past decade showed that the method is characteristic of short working term, low cost, no need of many oversize machine, simple working technology and convenient application.
