We hand shoveled 2 full dump truck loads of river rock and sand into the derrumbe to back fill the gabion boxes. I am getting very strong at shoveling! We then planted the entire area with vetiver grass to further stabilize the slide.

In response to the huge rainfall of Hurricane Alama,this land slide occured along the shoulder of Alazan's main road near Lot #6. Since access to all lots in the project is critical, we immediatly began remediation of the problem.

A record amount of rain fell in Costa Rica during the 48 hour period of Hurricane Alma. The photo below was taken near the old "Super Henry" store. The hills in the background are Alazan. The Rio Parrita actually breached the main road and made it impassable.
