Subject: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] Retaining wall drains

I wanted to see how many of you rely on drains behind retaining walls for
your wall design versus ignoring them. I understand these drains can end up
failing with time. The geotech reports I get are often based on soil
pressures assuming a drained condition behind the wall.
