On Wednesday, March 7, SME's Alan J. Esser, PE, D.GE will present “Do Slope Protective Ordinances Protect?” during the slopes, dams, and embankment case studies technical section at the International Foundations Congress and Equipment Expo (IFCEE) in Orlando, Florida.

During this technical session, Alan will explain why slope protective ordinances have been enacted by communities; what these ordinances attempt to protect; and will examine the provisions of a specific community’s ordinance and problems that developed for a project during construction. He will conclude that ordinances themselves do not protect but rather, having a knowledgeable and skilled geotechnical engineer who understands
and interprets subsurface conditions, is key.
