As you survey your property following the rain or property surrounding yours pay attention for any areas where there has been a sudden downward movement of a mass of soil from a cliff or steep slope. After the rainfall, hillside can remain saturated for several days. There are occasions when a slope failure gives no warning or sign of an impending catastrophe. Other times, you can visually inspect a slope and see tension cracks along the surface of the slope typically running parallel to the slope face. Other signs to look for include:
There are some areas of Belvedere that may be more susceptible to hillside slippage than others. Most of these areas are easily identifiable. If you suspect that there may be significant soil slippage occurring near you or if you see significant slippage elsewhere, please contact the City Engineer or Public Works Offices at 415.435.3838.
The City can repair and protect areas of damage on public property and can advise residents if there may be a need to seek advice from a civil or geotechnical engineer for private property issues.
