Abstract

Problems due to landslides prompted a visit to the West Valley Nuclear Service Center (WVNSC) near Springville, New York, on March 15 and 16, 1976. From this visit a report was prepared and contains the following:

  1. An assessment of the landslide conditions.
  2. An assessment of the immediacy of the landslide problems.
  3. A suggested study program for reducing the landslide hazard to an acceptable level. It is apparently necessary that the integrity of the site be maintained for a very long period of time, perhaps 1,000 years.
