Abstract

Construction of a powerhouse on unconsolidated landslide debris materials at the edge of a stream channel in a narrow, steep-sided canyon in northern California entailed application of an unusual combination of grouting techniques to protect the foundation during peak flows. These techniques included permeation grouting, displacement grouting, compaction grouting, and controlled hydrofracture grouting.
