Summary

Water pressure, ground velocity and ground acceleration data were collected May 19-22, 2014 at Brandon Road Lock and Dam near Joliet, Illinois and also June 2-5, 2014 in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal near Lemont, Illinois. The data were collected to measure water pressures and ground velocities produced from the firing of a seismic water gun.

Purpose

Water gun testing was conducted to obtain the magnitude and extent of seismic energy created on land and pressure generated in water to determine if the water gun could be used safely near structures while generating pressures sufficient to Asian carp movement.
