Geotechnical Expert

Synopsis

Through the longstanding relationship between Santa Cruz County and Dr. Ed Medley, Atlas Geotechnical is presently providing on-call geotechnical expert services to the County Counsel’s office. The Santa Cruz mountains are highly friable and subject to damaging landslides ranging from streambank erosion and roadway washouts to bedding plane slides that cut off entire neighborhoods. Atlas works with County staff to identify the nature of failures, develop a scope of investigation, and advise the County regarding repairs and claims resolution.
