BACKFILL GUIDE

FIELD INVESTIGATIONS HAVE SHOWN THAT IMPROPERLY PLACED AND COMPACTED BACKFILL IS COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH PAVEMENT SETTLEMENT AND THE MOVEMENT OF RETAINING STRUCTURES. THIS GUIDE IS PRESENTED TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BACKFILL, TO POINT OUT THE REASONS FOR SPECIFIED BACKFILLING PROCEDURES, AND TO SHOW SOME CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES THAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED. THE NECESSITY OF COMPLYING WITH BACKFILL SPECIFICATIONS IS EMPHASIZED. BACKFILL MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES ARE DISCUSSED.
