It's not a brown field site, meaning there's no contaminants we need to take care of, but we do need to go down deep enough to handle both the basement in the new building and the basement for the parking garage that we'll look at later. So we need to go about 20 feet to 30 feet down, depending on the location, cap those wells per current city or state standards, and then we can move forward with the project itself. Also, the site has no percolation at all so in California you're not allowed to just take runoff from your roofs or decks and just run them into the gutter or into the storm drain system.
