Georgetown Divide Slide Repair

A shallow landslide in El Dorado County threatened an EID water line in steep terrain. Georgetown Divide Utilities District had to repair in the wet season to avoid catastrophic failure.

Access was limited to a 3 mile unpaved road, making it difficult for trucks and equipment to get in and out. Haul trucks were prone to getting stuck in the mud, especially with the heavy rains.

Thunder Mountain constructed a gabion box wall to permanently stabilize the slope. Despite numerous challenges, construction was completed in only 3 weeks.
