Two different soil samples (sandy soil and clay soil) were obtained from different locations at Amassoma in Bayelsa state, Nigeria. Both soil samples were heated differently to temperature of about c and allowed to cool to room temperature of . The soil samples were sieved using sieve of 500mic for sandy soil and 106 clay soil. The mass of the required soil were measured using weighing balance, the soil samples were grouped into six namely; samples A(100% sandy soil), B(90% sandy soil +10 clay soil), C(80% sandy soil + 20% clay soil), D(70% sandy soil +30% clay soil), E(60% sandy soil+40% clay soil), F(50% sandy soil + 50% clay soil). Water was allow to pass through the different sample groups, the time of first drop), volume of water received, volume of water retained () and average flow rate) in each of the sample groups were obtained. The results obtained showed that “there is a marginal difference between water retained and water received for sample F, and sample C showed no difference between the quantities water received and the quantities water retained.
Keywords: Volume of Water Received, Volume of Water Retained, Time of Drop, Coefficient of Permeability and Clay Soil.
