    Project Description

    This project consisted of repairing previous damage and mitigating future erosion at 16 sites eroded by lack of drainage, landscape cover, or fault-line movement. Work included the repairs to roads and parking lots, repairing and replacing concrete swales, repairing hillside erosion, constructing new retaining walls and providing new landscaping. RCI made a full-depth replacement of parking lots, including the removal of saturated soil and replacement with Class II base. The parking lots were re-graded to divert water from ponding via trench drains. Additional asphalt curbs were installed on the north and west sides of the facilities to prevent water from migrating underneath the buildings. RCI provided AC-milling, repaving, retaining walls, landslide slope repairs, re-vegetation and hydro-seeding, utility expansion loops, drainage boxes and pipe, and new v-ditches as solutions to mitigate further erosion.
