    Extended drought conditions in Texas might be welcomed by a Louisiana foundation contractor mired in mud, but not the tower owner, who may have a problem with the foundation following its installation. A monolithic pad can be damaged by subsurface heaving once water is returned to the soils if the foundation was constructed upon extremely dried clay. You would do well to contact a local geotechnical consultant to review the plans, and if warranted, test the soils.
