Prof. Timothy Stark found the root cause of the significant slope failure at Chrin Landfill was inadequate design and stability analyses; inadequate specifications, testing, and manufacturing of geosynthetic materials; and lack of construction conformance testing. In addition to the opinions of Prof. Stark, Chrin’s expert team includes geotechnical engineering professor Edward Kavazanjian, Ph.D., PE, Arizona State University; and landfill designer Richard Thiel, M.S., PE.
