Abstract

The inhabitants of a village situated in the southern side of Romania have sued juridical action the local mining company considering that the coal quarry and the new sterile dump situated near up the locality, are the main cause of the civil buildings damages. In order to establish the true causes of damages occurred in the village area a number of 129 buildings has been monitorised and 19 geotechnical drillings were dug surveying the ground structure. Inclinometric tests have been performed for one year in 15 boreholes spread on several profiles. A global stability analysis was performed as well. Our study pointed out that, despite the appearances, the damages arc due to local previous landslides and inadequate foundation solutions.
