The <br />purpose of the site visit was to assess the slope and shoreline and determine an appropriate <br />minimum setback distance for the construction of a home on the site as well as other <br />development recommendations. Based on my assessment of the geology and geologic processes <br />at the subject property a home sited on the property should be set backat least 100 feet from the <br />top of the steep bluff slope. <br /> <br />SCOPE OF SERVICES <br /> <br />The scope of our services included the following: <br /> <br />1) Conducted a site visit to visually inspect the subject property including the bluff <br />face slope conditions, shoreline conditions, and relevant conditions in the vicinity <br />ofthe property. <br /> <br />2) Observed surface soil conditions on the bluff face and on the uplands above the <br />bluff by excavating shallow hand dug test pits and observing test pits excavated <br />for septic drain field evaluation. <br /> <br />3) Prepared this report summarizing our findings, including an evaluation of the <br />feasibility of building a residence on the subject property, an evaluation of the <br />shoreline bluff stability, recommendations for site development, and <br />recommendations for further investigation, if necessary. <br />
