Asilomar Bluff Stabilization Alternatives to be Discussed

Council District 11 and the City of Bureau of Engineering (BOE) will host a public meeting to discuss ways of stabilizing the Asilomar Landslide Area from 7 to 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, August 24, at the Palisades Library community room.

The Asilomar Landslide Area extends from the middle of Asilomar Boulevard down to the Palisades Mobile Home Park. After conducting studies in 2008, 2013 and 2015, the BOE ultimately recommended a de-watering system consisting of five pumping wells and a collector pipe to convey water to the existing sewer system. The studies also presented three alternatives for a retaining wall along the south side of the street.

Last April, engineering geologists conducted exploratory borings to obtain additional information about the subsurface soil. Various alternatives for wall design have also been analyzed and will be discussed at the meeting.

The wall design phase is expected be completed by fall 2017 and construction of a retaining wall should be completed in winter 2020.
