Lateral foundation loads will be resisted by a combination of passive soil pressure against the sides of footings and friction along the base. A passive soil resistance of 300 pounds per cubic foot may be utilized for design. Frictional resistance may be determined by multiplying foundation dead load by a coefficient of friction ofOAO.

The site soils should be overexcavated as necessary to allow placement of a minimum of three feet of structural fill on all building pads. Structural fill should extend a minimum of five feet laterally beyond the building perimeter. Prior to fill placement and following footing excavation, the natural soils should be scarified to a depth of eight inches and moistened to near optimum moisture content (±3%). The exposed soils should then be compacted to a minimum of 95% of maximum
