Landslide at Stoltz Bluff following heavy rainfall

James Craig, BC Conservation Foundation, December 12 2014

This short video illustrates the type of landslide that can result on slopes that saturated as a result of heavy rainfall, and which are not stabilized by vegetation.

In this instance, significant engineering and reconstruction at Stoltz Bluff a few years ago, included catchment ponds areas to prevent eroded material from running into the Cowichan River itself. These can be seen in action in the video.
