Large panel structure. 30' x 15' x 9' - 73,000 lbs of dirt being held back by those panels. 7' water fall.

73,000#. 36 tons. How do you figure?
:). You make it sound like the feature is holding back 36 tons. Your greatest pressure is at the bottom of the panel. Add water without a French Drain and you got a blow out. Hydrostatic pressure is a MoFo. Typically GFRC panels are attached to an Engineered Retaining wall. Large footing to boot. GFRC Panels are not Structural. Only Cosmetic. Be careful with those.
Im like Anderson Cooper. Keeping them Honest.
Sorry Matt. I didn't know that those were not normal GFRC Panels or something else. When I think of GFRC panels Im thinking of decorative concrete 1" thick 5'x 7' in size. Easy enough for 3 guys to handle. With inserts to allow for all thread or "J" anchor bolts to weld structural steel to. The panels I deal with need to be anchored to something Structural for they are not by themselves. I'f these panels that I am describing are not what we see here then due tell us what we are looking at. Im excited to know!
