The manual also provides guidelines for post-construction inspection. The majority of information in this document was taken from Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes Design and Construction Guidelines, Publication No. FHWA-NHI 00-043, 2001 and Mechanically Stabilized Earth Wall Inspector's Handbook published by Florida Department of Transportation, Geotechnical Engineer Paul D.
