About This Project

Description: A large Landslide destroyed one home and put several others at risk. KANE GeoTech, Inc. designed and installed a monitoring system which included a rain gage, three vibrating wire piezometers, two electrolytic (EL) bubble tiltmeters anchored to structures, and two EL bubble tiltmeters were installed in casing. In addition, two EL bubble tiltmeters were intalled on a temporary soldier pile wall to monitor movement. System contained an alerting function to notify personnel by page in the event that movement exceeded threshold values.
