i have a promblem in which this forum might be able to help. I am a contractor which installs infastructor for new subdivisions. i have run into a promblem that the compaction tests with a nucular gauge have failed do too too much moister(as much as 16%) when the pipe bedding was first put in it was dry and packed well. there was no compaction tests done at that time and now the municipality wanted that section dug up and tested .When tested it fails the nucular test do too high moister content. now the municipality has rejected the work and wants it dug up and redone. Is there another kind of test or a way around it?.(the rest of the job was tested in the dry and passed when dug up resently it also was too wet and failed)
