Groundhog 2018

ASCE Seattle Geotech Members

It’s that time of the year again to begin thinking about the Groundhog! For those that don’t know, this is a publication that the ASCE Seattle Geotechnical Group puts together every February 2 (Groundhog Day).  It contains project and staff news from the previous year from (hopefully!) all the geotechnical organizations (e.g. municipalities), geotechnical consulting and construction firms in the area. Ty has provided a pdf with the deadline and requirements for this year’s submission and also summarize the key points below:

Deadline for submission: January 11, 2017 (Thursday) Maximum length: 400 words
