I got back my soils report for residential lot that I am looking to build a house on. During borings, the neighbor told me that there is a high water table in this area and for me to be carful if I am considering building a basement. Did 2 borings and the Recorded Water Levels, W.D./A.D. came back as dry/dry for the first boring and 11.5/9.0 for the second boring. Talking with the PE who stamped the report he said "Dont worry about building a full basement, should not be a problem". Just looking to get other people opinions. Much appreciated.
