5-1 researching soil has come to be unhelpful, as I did my own research and consulted farmers to see what they had found out about the soil, and came out empty handed. It will be harder to start the foundations without knowing about the soil quality and contents, so I will likely do more research. If I come up empty handed after more research, I will end up being easier to do a pre-dig to see what we engineers will be dealing with underground. In the near future I will l look to get an estimate of how much land will be needed for faming and energy, and what building we will need to build for the social workers.
4-2 As an engineer, I am relieved that we know the population that Riverdale will be. This will make planning of water lines, electric lines, roads, and sewage lines much easier. It gives me time to research the approximate number of water lines, energy lines etc. that are needed in a city with 100,000 people.
