Abstract

Two apartment bui1dinga owned by Syracuse University in the Slocum Heights area underwent extensive differential.
settlement manifested by foundation cracks. Examination of rock exposures in the nearby area revealed the
presence of gypsum beds. Onsite boring and investigation revea1ed that regrading and instal1ation of french drains
and storm sewers influenced the groundwater regime resu1ting in so1utioning of the gypsum and subsequent co1lapse of
underground cavities. Rellledia1 meaaures inc1uded a1teration of drainage system and underpinning of apartment structures,
