The Cariboo Regional District Board (CRD) and City of Williams Lake released the LiDAR Slope Stability Study.
In a release from the CRD, they say that the Cariboo region is home to a number of historical landslide areas.
The landslides are categorized as slow moving, which means they move over a period of moths or even years.
To complete the study, geotechnical engineers used LiDAR technology, which provides accurate pictures of the Earth’s surface without any vegetation. This allowed engineers to identify areas that has experienced land movement.
The study however, cannot predict how much the slides will move in the future, as it only provides the movement between the three year period.
The study that was conducted for the landslide stability, concluded in June of 2022.
