(A) (1) If the preliminary soil report indicates the presence of critically expansive soils or other soil problems which, if not corrected, would lead to structural defects, a soil investigation of each lot in the development shall be prepared by a registered civil engineer.
(2) The soil investigation shall recommend corrective action which is likely to prevent structural damage to each structure proposed to be constructed in the area of the expansive soil.
(B) The report shall be filed with the building division. The soil report shall be noted on the final map together with the date of the report and the name of the engineer making the report and shall indicate the nature of adverse effects which will develop as a result of change in moisture content or the addition of water to the soil.
