PAG Geology can also help you with other problems involving soil, groundwater, and rocks.
Identifying Causes of Slope Instability
People build houses in scenic places… like valleys and mountainsides. Sometimes this doesn’t end well. Despite the best efforts of contractors and civil engineers, houses and other structures can start sliding, or sliding soil and rock can encroach on them. (Sometimes, we have to point out, you don’t even get their best efforts.) It can take a broader perspective to identify the real causes. You hire an engineer to design a solution to a problem, but you hire a geologist to make sure you actually know what the problem is.
