erodable silts and sands. If groundwater varies seasonally, long-term monitoring of the groundwater levels in the soil should be conducted. If groundwater levels tend to be responsive to significant rainfall events, the long-term groundwater monitoring should be continuous, and on-site rainfall data collection should also be considered.
