Hazardous Soils in Colorado

2011-02-10 | Dr. John Hopkins

This educational video, produced in 2011, explores the various problems that arise from hazardous soil conditions — expansive, collapsible/compressible,  hydrocompactive, dispersive, swelling/expansible — across the state. These geologic hazards combined cause more infrastructure damage in Colorado than any others. The video also covers the types of damage, methods for prevention or mitigation, along with outlining safety hazards and potential economic losses.
