1808.2.10 Piles Located Near a Lot Line
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Piles located near a lot line shall be designed on the assumption that the adjacent lot will be excavated to a depth of 10 feet (3048 mm) below the nearest legally established curb level. Where such excavation would reduce the embedded length of the pile, the portion of the pile exposed shall be deemed to provide no lateral or vertical support, and the load-carrying determination shall discount the resistance offered by the soil that is subject to potential excavation.
