Dear PoP – Sinkholes!

“Dear PoP,

So, I have a little dispute with our landscape/hardscape contractor about a two sinkholes in our Columbia Heights backyard. I believe the sinkholes have occurred due to a lack of soil compaction but they think its plumbing related. I’m wondering if there are any soils engineers or geotech experts in the POP viewing area that would be willing to take a look and provide some opinion. This has been a multi-year saga with one trip already to the DC Courts Dispute Resolution Center. I’d jump at the chance for and expert opinion to put this issue to rest. Any help would be appreciated!”

If we have soils engineers or geotech experts I’ll be seriously impressed. If not, perhaps others have dealt with a similar situation? If so, how was responsible and how was the issue resolved?
