Landslide Inventory Questionnaire
Although small landslides are common in Maine, there are very few reliable records of their occurrence. Your assistance is requested to help the Maine Geological Survey compile a list of recent Maine landslides (1987 to present). This data will be used to update the inventory of Maine landslides, that may be used by state, county, and local officials, consultants, and utilities to assist them in planning, regional landslide analysis, and hazard mitigation planning. Please complete this questionnaire if you are aware of any slide locations in your area. We are looking for information on landslides of any type or size. The primary information needed is an accurate location and description of the slide. Any other information you can provide would be appreciated. If we need further information on the slide, we will perform a site visit to the landslide locality. Please pass this form (Landslide Questionnaire - pdf version) or the website address to anyone else you think may have information on landslides in their area.
