La Jolla Lanslide to be Stabilized with Caissons.

The recommendation to secure the La Jolla Landslide is to install 37 42"-48" diameter caissons 60 to 66 feet deep spaced 7 to 8 feet apart. Apparently this is new technology according to the city engineer who quoted the Union Tribune: "In the last 20 to 25 years, the standards have improved a lot in the geotechnical engineering area,...They have a lot more experience and better knowledge, and now they have much better technology." Hmmm....
