- Geological mapping of deep foundation floor is essential to provide permanent data set for geological interpretation. A deep pump house (94 m long x 20 m width x 78 m deep) of Mahatma Gandhi Kalwakurthi Lift Irrigation Scheme-II (MGKLIS-II) wasconstructed at Mahaboobnagar District in TelanganaState for the irrigation of drought prone upland areas. Engineering geological mapping on 1:200 scale of foundation floor of pump house was carried out in order to evaluate the basic design parameters. All the discontinuities in the rock mass of pump house area with the zone of influence of the foundation were identified and mapped. Mapping was done to assess the requirement of any ground improvement by adopting suitable engineering measures. Safe bearing pressure of the foundation was estimated by rock mass rating, rockmass characteristic parameters. Based on investigations geotechnical problems were identified and suitable engineering measures for rock support were suggested to make foundation monolithic
