Tract A ofthe Villa Alegre Development

The test holes allow observation of a very small portion of the soils below the site. Significant variations in subsurface conditions may occur across the site, which were not disclosed by the test holes.

LABORATORY TESTING

A laboratory testing program was performed on samples obtained during the field investigation which appeared representative of the soils encountered in the test holes. The laboratory testing program was structured to determine the physical properties of the soils encountered in the test holes necessary for development of geotechnical recommendations.

The laboratory testing program included:

Ie

Ie

Moisture Content; Dry Density; Sieve Analysis; Atterberg Limits; and Consolidation/Collapse.

Moisture Content and Dry Density tests were performed to evaluate the in-place soil density and moisture content. Test results help to evaluate settlement potential. Test results indicate the soils encountered in the test holes are medium dense with an average dry density of approximately 106 pcf. Natural moisture
