A CASE HISTORY OF LANDSLIDE CAUSED BY CONFINED GROUNDWATER

An understanding of groundwater regimes is an important prerequiste to effectice stabilization of many landslides. In this study stabilization measures for confined and unconfined groundwater conditions associated with a 30,000 cubic yard translational landslide were evaluated. The effectiveness of temporary stabilization measures including horizontal drains and a drainage trench is discussed. It is concluded that confined groundwater conditions should be considered after determination of a coincidence of the slide surface and the groundwater table in residual soil.
