Abstract

The slurry backfill operation for the Rock Springs subsidence control project is briefly described. The extent of ground failure and building damage is presented. The scope of the ensuing geotechnical investigation to indicate any possible cause and effect relationship between the pumped slurry backfill operation and observed damage is described. The general and specific findings regarding the damaged area are discussed. Conclusions from the investigation are presented.
