I have a max curve in hand which showing the optimum water content amd max dry density. I told the contractor million times to add more water to the loose soil prior to compaction but they would rather have the compactor running back and forth for the whole morning than connecting the hose to the fire hydrant. Results? They achieved the required 90% max but the moisture content is low. Is this acceptible? Was I looking at the same max curve in hand for they have added more compaction effort? Please provide your opinion!!
