Details

Install geosynthetic filtering fabrics (i.e., geotextiles, geogrids, geocells) to reinforce soil.

Capital Cost

Moderate/High

Operations & Maintenance

Low

Effectiveness

Moderate/High – adding structural support improves slope stability, reducing landslide risk. Geosynthetics can also support drainage and reduce erosion

Flexibility

Low – it is generally cost-prohibitive to modify slope stabilization materials/structures once implemented

Barriers to Implementation

Expertise; cost

Equity

Ensure equitable siting of infrastructure across a range of equity areas, based on greatest need
