Cheyenne Mountain landslide mitigation
CHEYENNE MOUNTAIN AIR FORCE STATION, Colorado – A “Lama” helicopter designed for high elevation prepares to lift equipment in and out of the canyons where ring nets are being installed, May, 28, 2015. The five ring nets are one of four steps in the mitigation process to reduce the damage of future landslides. The ring nets, 15-foot deep main catchment basin, a culvert down the mountain into the storm water system and infrastructure protection are being built as a result of landslides that struck the mountain Sept. 12, 2013, following torrential rain.
