We are looking to build a home on a lot that had a sediment pond on it for several months. It has recently been drained and packed (about 25 feet). I am now wondering about long term inpact of the house over time sinking and settling and perhaps even cracking as the weight of the house sinks in the packed lot. Are my concerns legitimate or am I just scaring myself. I plan to get the County Soil and Conservation Service to provide me with the Compaction Reports and any other helpful information to make my decision. Any insight in this matter would be apprieciated.
