To Soil Stabilization,

Could you share soil site conditions: are we talking about sand, clay, compressible
peat, or, heaven forbid, fill?

If its loose granular material like sand that's saturated, you are creating the
classic conditions for soil liquefaction.  Where is the water table?  Are you
near a river.  If there is a site soil log, please post it.

Try a knowledgeable engineering geologist, such as Allen Hatheway, at the Univ
of Missouri Rolla.

Next time read Mathew: "a wise man builds his cyclic 30k grinder on rock!"
