landslide stabilizaton

i have a massive movement i am looking at to stabilize.  it is a 75% slope moving as one mass about 40*100.  it seems it is the accumulation of cut and undesired topsoil/cutting from cutting the lot (residential).  can ya'll reccomend any techniques to stabilize this movement?


RE: landslide stabilizaton

Can you  provide more information?  Things like water table/piezometric level, materials, rate of movement, movement tied to weather or season, depth of sliding surface (if there is a distinct rupture surface), etc.

By a 75% slope, do you mean 0.75 vertical to 1 horizontal, or the other way around?  Is the 40x100 the size in feet or in meters?

Best regards,

RE: landslide stabilizaton
