Matthew Morris, P.G., current President of AEG (Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists) came to speak at UWG on November 28, 2012. He gave a fascinating talk on a rock slope stabilization project that
he is involved with in Pennsylvania. When the infamous flood of Johnstown, PA occurred in the 1800's, affluent residents moved to the nearby hills. Large neighborhoods flourished there, and now the main artery to town, which has a very steep grade, is plagued by landslides and rock falls. Morris tracked the history of the road and the proposed fixes for it. The visit was coordinated by Matt Howe of the SE Section of AEG and the Geosciences Club.
