SlopeWatch works with resident groups, local authorities and federal agencies to make landslide risk reduction a collaborative effort between the various levels of government and civil society.




Who we are

SlopeWatch is a community program run by residents who monitor slopes in their neighbourhood for signs of landslides and conduct simple maintenance of slopes, such as clearing of overgrowth in drains.

By participating as SlopeWatchers, residents become the “eyes and ears” for the local authorities. Because residents are familiar with their surroundings, they are the best observers of any changes in the slopes around their homes.
By working together with federal slope agencies and local and state authorities, communities can take a risk-reduction approach to hillside living.

Public awareness and education sessions help residents become more knowledgeable on safeguarding their communities.
