Problem of seepage in the foundation of canal structures is one of the most important issues in civil engineering in water Tendency. There exist several failures in different canal sections constructed in Guilan drainage system due to penetration of ground flow through permeable media of the soil. In this study, following series of chemical, physical and strength tests, the effect of leaching has been appointed and investigated on the north Iran's clay soils. This study indicates that as a result of leaching the soil structure have become porous and removal the soluble salts and part of the fine particle change the dry unit weight, void ratio, specific gravity and hydraulic conductivity. Also, leaching cause the reduction of mechanical properties and unconfined compressive strength, Elasticity of modulus, Cohesion and friction angle in two conditions as drained and un-drained conditions. Finally, using the result of laboratory tests and comparison with the results of a case study using a numerical approach, the effect of leaching in sliding has been investigated.
