Clay Soil Not Drying Near Foundation


Goicovich added on October 2, 2015 | Answered

What should I do regarding clay soil not drying near foundation? Area has been dug out approximately 2 feet and there was light rain yesterday am now with standing water 12" x 6" x 6" deep. New house builder said it is the soil. I'm having concrete poured over the area next week. Should I be concerned?
