The site soils are slightly collapsible if allowed to increase in moisture content. If the soils supporting footings are allowed to increase in moisture content, additional settlement of 14 inch per foot of wetted soil could occur.

Foundations should be designed and constructed to tolerate the above settlement. Foundations should be designed by a qualified structural engineer.

To reduce the affect of settlement on the structure, we suggest that all stucco be fiberglass reinforced. Periodic control joints should be utilized in the stucco particularly at window and door comers. Periodic control joints should also be utili7£d in masonry walls.
