New equipment will help monitor Rattlesnake Ridge landslide

Starting next week new equipment will be install near Rattlesnake Ridge Landslide.

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources will start working on installing new equipment to help monitor the ridge.

The slow-moving landslide has decreased its movement since April.

The installation is set to start on Monday and end in the first week of January.

Senior Emergency Planner Horace Ward said the new equipment will help them continue monitoring the landslide.

“Installing some new instruments will supplement the other instruments that are already in place,” said Ward.

The new installation of equipment will not affect the speed of the landslide.
