landslide - remedial work/preventive work

Anyone having some experience on how to remediate an area, which has shown some sloughing/landslide. Currently, the landslide has not yet extended to close a road. Any vurrent trends or techniques on how to reduce/relieve stresses causing the landslide ?
Water table is high at the crest of the slopes, indicating that it may be a problem. What is the fastest way to drain the water ? How to seal existing cracks so that it will not further causing progressive failures ?


RE: landslide - remedial work/preventive work

One thing that we have used successfully is horizontal drains.

RE: landslide - remedial work/preventive work

Search this site for Skip Watts (Radford University, USA).  He may be able to provide assistance.


RE: landslide - remedial work/preventive work

drainage is certainly the solution, we often use diaphragm wall techniques with adequate filling material in france to solve this kind of problem ( cut areas in highway projects for example ). This is known as " paroi drainante " in France.
In complement you have to install a pumping system or some horizontal drains.
A network of horizontal drains will work.
Ideal solution will depend on site topography .
