Geotechnical Challenges and Opportunities in Large Infrastructure Projects—Learning from Failures 
The side slopes of large reservoirs may be stable for stability point of view. However, selection of other elements like protection tiling above geosynthetic lining may experience distress. Dykes or embankment resting on pervious foundation is more critical and failing to recognize it sometimes may invite huge maintenance and repairing costs. Lessons learned from these cases shall help Engineers to proactively consider such situations in order to prevent such geosynthetic failures in large infrastructure projects.
