Abstract: A wetter than usual spring season caused numerous landslides in the Badland Region of North Dakota, including the failure of the Mormon Butte oil well platform after thirty years of active service. This case study will detail the site investigation, design, and construction of a geologically sensitive site located on U.S. Forest Service land. The main concern was how much failed soil could be removed without compromising the well. Analyses were performed to determine a safe temporary slope to allow for the removal of some of the failed soils. To read more on how the platform was completed and...

The growth of solar gardens and utility scale solar installations will continue to increase in the years to come. Large scale land usage requires an understanding of the impacts to the local habitat as well as the baseline environmental conditions of the site to help avoid future claims. Solar arrays require an understanding of site soils to design a racking system that can withstand the lateral and vertical forces induced. Complete the form to view a recorded version of our webinar and learn more about environmental aspects relating to solar sites as well as the geotechnical process for providing solar site recommendations....

Welcome Back! This second part of our three-part series on slope stability builds on our discussion of failure features, mechanics and triggering factors with guidelines for qualifying risk, identifying geotechnical needs, and responding to and preventing failures. Qualifying the Risk Our Part 1 discussion showed slope stability to be a complex topic, but also showed how much potential influence you can have over its prevention and, worst-case, mitigation. That influence is founded, however, on the understanding that: Slope failure is always a possibility, and Susceptibility to and evidence of failure is not always apparent, even to a trained eye. Unfortunately,...
