Tract A ofthe Villa Alegre Development
All existing fill, paving, foundations, slabs, utilities, leach fields, septic tanks, and disturbed soil should be removed from below the proposed structures. The resulting excavations should be backfilled with compacted fill as detailed in the attached Appendix.
We anticipate that on-site soils can be excavated with conventional earthwork equipment. Occasional cobbles or boulders may be encountered during excavation. Cobbles and boulders should be disposed of off-site or utilized for landscaping. Cobbles and boulders should not be placed within structural fills.
Natural Ground Preparation
Prior to placing structural fill and subsequent to final grading in cut areas, the exposed soils should be scarified to a depth of eight inches and moisture conditioned to a near optimum (+3%) moisture content. The exposed soils should then be compacted to a minimum of 95% of maximum density as determined by ASTM D-1557. If vibratory compaction poses a threat to nearby structures, static compaction should be utilized.
