One of the first things to determine is the depth of the water table. In essence, this is how deep you can excavate before the hole you are making starts to fill up like a bathtub. This may seem like a minor detail, but it is not. During the construction of the Newport, Oregon skatepark, they mistakenly excavated below the water table. In an effort to stop the flow of water, shotcrete was applied. That didn’t work. What remained can only be referred to as cement soup. It took another season, more of the cities money and a tremendous effort on the part of couple of professional skatepark builders (willing to fix someone else’s mistakes) to get the park where it is today.
