The objectives of this field reconnaissance are to collect data related to the slope stability of the cut slopes KM 4 of Manson 16000 Road, and to make recommendations for further studies to detail investigation and mitigation measures where appropriate. The cut slopes are located above Munro Creek, a tributary of the Manson River, Blackwater Operations, Mackenzie Forest District. Three recommendations were tabled. Firstly to carry out a detailed field investigation and survey to provide enough data for slope stabilization design. Secondly to drain the surface and ground water from up-slopes and within the slopes into nearest streams. Well-designed and constructed drainage, ground and surface water being the first and essential measure to stop further movement. Lastly, other stability measures will function well only after good drainage is established.
