A. Bruce Rogers, P.G., USACE - Nashville District

A rock slope at the edge of the Wix Howard Cemetery located in Loyall, Kentucky, began failing in February of 2016. The site geology is located within the Hance Formation, a massive siltstone of Pennsylvanian age. The slide endangers a portion of the cemetery and the adjacent flood control channel constructed by the USACE Nashville District in the late 1990s.
During the summer of 2016, slide failure progressed and threatened the graves of a Revolutionary War Veteran, Samuel Howard and members of his family. These graves were relocated in November of 2016. A geotechnical investigation was performed in early 2017 and the design of the slope remediation is nearing completion. LiDAR aerial mapping, field investigations and analysis of subsurface data has provided an accurate insight to the mechanics of the slide.
