    A few projects I have done recently

    Every Goe report I have ever read (that cost a good bit of money) ends the same way."This Report does not guarantee the actual soils condition and is not responsible for any discrepancies" Often the report will show problems with the sight and I have to wonder if the PE even bothered to look at it?
