Even the excavation contractor had no good alternatives.

I do wonder if the rocks themselves will eventually settle into their place and we can somehow place more if we need to on top of them. Mind you this will take additional funding and maybe even another grant request. These items were discussed in the several on-site meetings but none of us believed we would see it so soon. Time to get to work on a solution it seems, let the ideas fly!
Telephone pole type timbers driven down into the ground, with a cross bar, and rocks, in a terrace fashion.
