  36. 36. SummarySummary • Use commonly stable cut and fill slope angles • For failures, assess why a site failed • Find the least expensive, effective stabilization measure • Consider use of drainage and vegetation • Use structures where necessary. Analyze and design significant structures! • Place structures on a solid foundation
