Recommendations in Entech’s excellent report should be strictly adhered to. As recommended by Entech, additional subsurface investigations will be required for individual lot development to determine engineering properties of the soils and bedrock, depth to bedrock and groundwater and to develop site specific engineering recommendations for foundation design, subdrains, etc.
We recommend consistency of Lot numbering on the Preliminary and Grading Plans; and the following recommendations from Entech’s report be depicted and/or noted on the plans:
• Planned erosion control adjacent to Sand Creek;
• 20-foot setback from crest of Sand Creek Slopes be drawn on the plans specifically for Lot 12 (as shown on the Preliminary Plan and Lot 34 on the Grading Plan); and,
• Drain systems in tributary drainage's that will be filled in by development.
Additionally, we recommend erosion control measures account for scour erosion from Sand Creek as determined by the Civil Engineer.
We applaud the use of a geologic hazard disclosure statement on the plans. We recommend that this statement include all the geologic hazards identified at the site, including radon and erosion, as well as the others listed in Entech’s report. The current statement lists some lots considered at risk to some hazards. We do not think the lots listed are the only ones at risk from these identified hazards or the other ones not listed. Due to the limited number of borings (4) drilled we do not believe the individual hazards for 212 lots can be determined at this phase in the project. We recommend that, unless more detailed subsurface investigations are conducted that individual lot numbers not be used in this statement on the Preliminary Plan.
Entech identifies shallow groundwater, the potential for shallow groundwater and seasonally wet areas and shallow bedrock. Feasibility of basements due to shallow groundwater, seasonally shallow groundwater and perched groundwater on shallow bedrock is not discussed in Entech’s report. CGS recommends that this issue be addressed prior to development of final plans. Should basements be desired we recommend a systematic groundwater monitoring program measuring the extent of seasonal fluctuations (through on full spring, summer and fall season) to obtain groundwater data that can be used to determine feasibility of basements. This data will be useful whatever grades determined in the final grading plan.
Additionally, we recommend that the Civil Engineer evaluate if a gravity or pumped system may be necessary as part of a groundwater collection system (underdrains), especially if basements are considered.

Engineering Development Review has the following comments:

1. Concur with Traffic Engineering comment that developer must construct 10' trail on the west side of Marksheffel Rd.

2. The developer will be responsible for constructing Marksheffel Rd. adjacent to this development. As Marksheffel enters City limits on the south, it must have a pavement top width of 64', City Std. Type 1 Curb/Gutter, 10' trail on the west side and 6' detached sidewalk on the east side.

3. Construction plans must be submitted to the City for review/approval for all street construction and public improvements if this development is to be annexed into the City of Colorado Springs.

4. Geological hazard report will have to be submitted to the City for review and approval if this development is to be annexed into the City of Colorado Springs.

This development relies on future Pond W5 for Full Spectrum Detention. The outfall and spillway for Pond W5 extend into the City. SWENT requests that the approval of any construction drawings for developments tributary to this pond not occur until after City approval of the pond outfall.
