Portion of foundation fails at city home due to wet soil

Email

WILLMAR -- Wet soil caused a portion of the foundation of an older house to fail Wednesday at 933 2nd St. S.E.

Bruce Peterson, director of city planning and development services, said the city has a lot of expansive soil that swells when it becomes wet. The swelling exerts pressure on foundations and sometimes squeezes the water through the foundation and pushes walls in.
