    Abstract :

    Geotechnical investigation is important to avoid structural failures. These failures could lead to disaster which poses serious threats to public safety. Present study mitigates such incidences for that, it is necessary to study the subsurface material. In present study, geotechnical investigations are carried out to construct barrage across Bori River near village Naldurg, Taluka-Tuljapur, District –Osmanabad. Barrage sites is located 3 km from Naldurg village near N.H no. 65 and lies longitude 760 17’ 34” and latitude 170 45’ 22”on Toposheet no. 56 c/5. To evaluate the depth and underlying rock type project engineers have drilled nine drill holes up to depth 11M to 21M. The bore hole lithological study shows the alluvial and Black cotton soil followed by weathered, jointed, zeolitic and massive rock which shows good RQD for proposed sites.Keyword:-Barrage, Geotechnical, Core drill, RQD, Subsurface investigation
