The Division exercises special geotechnical control over foundation design and construction for developments in Ma On Shan, an area which is underlain by marble. Large cavities are present within the marble in some locations.

We also manage the GEO's landslide emergency service. As part of this service, GEO provides 24-hour, year-round emergency advice to Government departments, on action to be taken to safeguard the public following landslide or rockfall incidents. When a Landslip Warning or a Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No.8 or higher is issued by the Hong Kong Observatory, the GEO Emergency Control Centre will be mobilised.
