Measures against mud flows

Personal measure
  • Avoidance of exposed slopes and their deposition zones (in particular in the case of heavy precipitation events).

 

Technical measures
  • Construction of deflection structures (training dikes, wedge-shaped structures, mounds)
  • Construction of reinforced walls facing slopes
  • Avoidance of openings in buildings facing slopes or location of such openings at a sufficient height above the surface of the terrain.
