Ground Failures and Other Groundwater-Related Property Damage

Avoid ground failures by understanding the impact of groundwater on soil, foundations, and building systems.

This topic covers the basic ground failure mechanisms that cause property damage and the role groundwater plays in these failures. We will review recent case studies to examine how groundwater impacts building and infrastructure systems, and updated techniques and considerations in investigation and design. Climate change is a new factor and the magnitude and potential effect on the built environment is not fully understood yet. We know climate change is affecting baseline conditions and risks faster than regulatory control can accommodate. Recent failures provide lessons learned for technical professionals to incorporate into planning and design studies.
