Abstract

This Geoguide presents a recommended standard of good practice for the maintenance of man-made slopes and retaining walls, disturbed terrain features and natural terrain hazard mitigation measures. It is aimed primarily at the engineering profession, but it will be of use to other parties concerned with slopes and retaining walls maintenance.

This edition allows slope owners to accord maintenance efforts to slopes and retaining walls with respect to their consequences. It also addresses other issues that have come up lately, including maintenance requirements for disturbed terrain features and measures implemented for the mitigation of natural terrain hazard. Opportunity is also taken to make other minor corrections and enhancements.
