The purpose of our services is to evaluate the geologic site conditions and perform analyses to provide our geotechnical opinions on observed damage, causation factors and possible remedial measures. Based on our understanding of the project, we recommend the following scope of work. Phase 1 - Geotechnical Evaluation: The anticipated initial scope of services will include a review of available project documents and regional geologic conditions, examination of current site conditions including exposed soil conditions in the landslide area, project meetings, and preparation of geotechnical exhibits, as needed. A topographic survey will be needed for geotechnical evaluation and for eventual use in repair plans. If requested, we will summarize our geotechnical opinions in a brief letter report. We will provide geotechnical consultation and expert services, as requested. Supplemental Services: Geotechnical Repair, Consultation and/or Plan Review: A retaining structure will likely be needed to re -support the downslope edge of the roadway. We can provide geotechnical investigation, design and construction plans for the repair, or provide geotechnical recommendations and design criteria for others to design. Following issuance of our geotechnical plans or reports, we will be available to consult with the project team to respond to requests for information or answer any geotechnical questions that may arise during project design development. If repair plans are performed by others, we should review the plans as they near completion to confirm intent of our geotechnical recommendations has been suitably incorporated. 504 Redwood Blvd., Suite 220 ■ Novato, California 94947 ■ T (415) 382-3444 F (415) 382-3450 Exhibit A City of San Ragael Page 2 Geotechnical Construction Support: MILLER PACIFIC ENGINEERING GROUP December 30, 2020 We will respond to requests for information and review submittals as they relate to the geotechnical portions of the project.

AGREEMENT FOR PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING AND TESTING SERVICES April 2019 Page 8 of 8 Experience Summary Scott Stephens is President of Miller Pacific Engineering Group and is responsible for the overall business management of the firm. He is also the Senior Project Manager and Reviewer for numerous Geotechnical and Geo -Civil projects. He has prepared numerous geotechnical investigations, geotechnical planning reports, geo-civil designs, environmental impact studies, and serves as a Peer Reviewer for several local governmental agencies. He has conducted many forensic geotechnical investigations and has provided expert testimony on geotechnical issues including slope instability, retaining wall failure, foundation distress and groundwater seepage. Scott has worked on hundreds of site grading and slope instability projects throughout Marin and Sonoma County for various private and public clients. The geologic and geotechnical investigations typically include exploration of subsurface conditions, evaluation of geologic hazards, and geotechnical design criteria for the recommended foundation system. During construction, Scott provides geotechnical consultation, and directs geotechnical observation and testing for site grading, foundation and keyway excavations, subsurface drainage, soil nails / tiebacks, pavement construction and other geotechnical construction items. He has provided complete Geo -Civil services including plans, details, specifications and contract document for retaining walls, landslide repairs and pedestrian bridges. A couple representative projects are described below. Woodside Terrace Landslide, Fremont CA A large landslide developed on open space directly and in the back yards of several homes. The subject of major litigation, Mr. Stephens performed a geotechnical forensic investigation and provided expert testimony. Primary causation factors were i determined to be weak geologic bedrock layers and groundwater - seepage. Following litigation, Mr. Stephens performed analyses i to develop a landslide repair plan and provided construction management, inspection and testing. The repair included �.. installation of drilled piers with tie -backs to support the landslide scarp and homes during excavation. The landslide was excavated below the failure slide plans and an extensive subsurface drainage system was installed to collect and convey groundwater. The landslide area was rebuilt with a reinforced earth buttress to restore conditions. Loch Lomond Breakwater, San Rafael CA Long term settlement and wave erosion resulted in over -topping of the old breakwater during high tides and storms. The overtopping was causing accelerated degradation of the breakwater. In order to effectively function in the future, it needed to be repaired and raised. Mr. Stephens performed a geotechnical investigation which included interpretation of the underlying geologic conditions, settlement analyses and slope stability ,Yp f analyses- The repair plan needed to consider expected future �. settlement from the original construction as well as new settlement ' from weight of import materials needed to raise the levee crest elevation. In addition, the weight of the import material had to be minimized to reduce the potential to induce instability by failure of the weak underlying soft, compressible clays (bay mud)- The final solution was a bi-level levee crest with expansion of the San Francisco Bay side. A pedestrian path was built on the marina side that followed the existing breakwater contours. A rip -rap berm was constructed a few feet higher than the pedestrian path, and new rip -rap slope protection added to the bay side to protect the breakwater. Phoenix Lake Dam and Reservoir, Ross, CA As part of the Marin County Watershed Flood Damage Reduction and Creek Management e= Study, Mr. Stephens evaluated the geotechnical and geologic feasibility of several potential detention basin sites. Based on initial analyses, increasing the short-term storage capacity of the existing Phoenix Lake Reservoir was determined to be a critical component for flood management. He performed sensitivity analyses using various strength profiles for static, rapid -drawdown and pseudo -static (seismic) slope stability analyses to evaluate the effect of k a raised reservoir level on factors of safety and seismic displacements. He assisted with the grant application for project funding. Anselm Plaza, San Anselmo, CA Fair -Anselm Plaza commercial development was originally constructed to overhang Corte Madera Creek. During high velocity storm water flows, the creek banks were eroding and sloughing which exposed the drilled pier foundation system and caused the creek bank to encroach on the shallow foundations that support the structures. Mr. Stephens conducted a ' subsurface exploration program, designed a bank stabilization system and provided construction management and inspection services. Saturated and loose silt, sand and gravel deposits within "the creek bed and banks made traditional drilled excavations unstable. Scott designed a .019. k"15'1 reinforced shotcrete wall that was vertically and laterally supported with helical anchors. Y ,,,� , • 'r� The helical anchors were screwed into the ground, eliminating the need for unsupported F ° " excavation and significantly reducing soil cuttings. The shotcrete wall was colored and textured 9 Y 9 9 to match the natural soils in the surrounding creek banks. Existing on-site rock slope protection was relocated around foundations and along the base of the wall for scour protection. Zone 7 Cope Lake, Livermore CA Wave erosion along the shoreline, groundwater seepage from an upslope seasonal creek and non -engineered fill on the east slope of Cope Lake led to significant toe erosion and landslides that created over -steepened, unstable slopes and loss of the only vehicular access road around the lake. Scott conducted a geotechnical investigation to determine the slope instability causation factors and develop a geologic cross-section for use in stability analyses of various slope stability and repair options with rough cost estimates. The preferred stabilization option was a reinforced earth slope with subsurface drainage and erosion resistant facing in the lower slope elevations. Existing concrete and rock debris were utilized to stabilize the soft keyway soils and create the rip -rap facing layer. Mr. Stephens worked with Zone 7 on the preferred mitigation by providing stability analyses, development of technical specifications, technical review of the contract document, and geotechnical consultation, inspection and testing during construction. North Marin Water District (NMWD) Palmer Tank, Novato CA A new 3,500,000 -gallon water tank, pipeline and access road was construction in undeveloped hillside terrain. Mr. Stephens performed geologic and geotechnical studies with a focus to limit grading and minimize environmental impacts. He designed a cost-effective, reinforced shotcrete retaining wall with soil nails that supports a vertical cut behind the tank and creates the tank pad and surrounding service road His Geo -Civil design of the shotcrete wall included plans and technical specifications that were incorporated into the contract documents. ±4W61 During the construction, he provided consultation, inspection and testing that included submittal reviews, proof and performance load testing on the soil nails, shotcrete and concrete compression tests, inspection of subsurface drainage, foundation subgrade conditions, field density testing of compacted fill for new fill slopes, and trench backfill and pavement sections. We summarized our inspection and testing in a letter report with as -built plans.
