     The Shahid Rajaie dam on the Tajan River is located about 41km south of Sari city, in north of Iran. The dam is an arch concrete dam and reservoir. The dam is located on the calcareous and clastic sediments to late second and early third geological are. These rocks are affected by high jointing and faulting especially in the surface. This paper discusses characteristically engineering geology and studying permeability and grout ability in Shahid Rajaie dam’s abutments and central foundation.
