An earth dam is built on an impervious foundation with a horizontal filter at the base near the toe. The permeability of the soil in the horizontal and vertical directions are 3 × 10-2 mm/sec and 1× 10-2 mm/sec, respectively. The full reservoir level is 30 m above the filter. A flow net constructed for the transformed section of the dam, consist of 4 (four) flow channels and 16 (sixteen) potential drops. Estimate the seepage loss per meter length of the dam.
