Project: Tract 29725
Location: County of Riverside, California
Description: Geotechnical investigation and grading observation for a 20-acre property to be developed with 117 one and two-story single-family residences. This site is located adjacent to the Indian Hills Golf Course in Riverside County, California. The borings encountered potentially collapsible alluvial soils. Grading recommendations to mitigate the collapse potential of these soils were provided. Recommendations for blasting of unweathered bedrock were also provided. Following completion of the recommended grading, the proposed structures were recommended to be supported on shallow foundations. SCG also designed a Verdura 40 segmental retaining wall that will be constructed behind several of residential lots within this development. Southern California Geotechnical is currently monitoring post grading activities.
