ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes V3 Water Management System Builder Checklist - New Mexico Mobile App
Use the specifications in this Checklist to help improve moisture control in brand-new New Mexico homes.
How does it work?
When inspecting water-managed site and foundations, where setbacks limit space to less than 10 ft., swales or drains designed to carry water from foundation shall be provided. Also, tamping of back-fill is not required if either: proper drainage can be achieved using non-settling compact soils, as determined by a certified hydrologist, soil scientist, or engineer; OR, the builder has scheduled a site visit to provide in-fill and final grading after settling has occurred (e.g., after the first rainy season). This entire Checklist can be modified as necessary to comply with New Mexico state and local regulations.
