Abstract: Since 1999, hydraulic conductivity values in till have been measured by the laboratory standard test method ASTM D 5084 on undisturbed soil samples taken at depths between 3.0 m to 6.0 m (10 to 20 ft) in glacial till soils in western Ohio. Their rates on uncracked soil vary from 106 cm/sec to 109 cm/sec. Measurements made on till with cracks vary from 105cm/sec to 10 8 cm/sec. Suggestions are made for future studies.
