ENGINEERING STABILITY STUDY OF A PROPOSED WASTE AREA IN STEEP TOPOGRAPHY

ROAD BUILDING AND TIMBER HARVESTING NORTH OF THE SMITH- UMPQUE RIVER BLOCK IS THE MAJOR CAUSE OF SOIL LOSS RESULTING FROM SIDECASTING EXCESSIVE EXCAVATION WHEN CONSTRUCTING SYSTEM ROADS, NONSYSTEM SPUR LOGGING ROADS, AND LOGGING LANDINGS. THE STUDY INCLUDED: 1) WASTE STABILITY STUDIES TO CONTROL PLACEMENT OF EXCESS EXCAVATION--V-SHAPED CANYONS AND RAVINES WERE SUGGESTED; 2) FIELD AND LABORATORY STUDIES FOR DENSITY, COMPACTION, MOISTURE DENSITY RELATIONSHIPS, SHEAR, AND PERMEABILITY; 3) ENGINEERING STUDIES DEVELOPING DIFFERENT EMBANKMENT SECTIONS FOR DIFFERENT DOWNSTREAM SLOPE RATIOS, AND THEIR MODES OF FAILURE FOR VARIOUS DRAINAGE CONDITIONS; AND 4) INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL DRAINAGE FOR SAFETY AND EROSIONAL CONTROL.
