Large hydro projects involve formation of big reservoirs surrounded by a natural Rim with varying gradient and geology. Very often slopes of Reservoir Rim are exposed to massive slides due to saturation or drawdown in reservoir. The stability study of reservoir rim is therefore an important aspect to evaluate vulnerability assessment of slopes, to analyze quantum of risk involved and to mitigate the risk. Major activities involved in a typical Reservoir Rim Stability Study are,
ATES has in-house capability to conduct such special studies. A study has been recently conducted for a major project and has helped the stake holders to plan construction activity.
