Monitoring Road-Watershed Performance

An Initiative for Efficient and Effective Road Performance Monitoring:

Combine effort to complete DSRs and INFRA to achieve road performance monitoring

mj furniss, PNW. 2005

Roads are a focus of watershed monitoring
Roads are a focus of watershed monitoring

  • But roads vary greatly in performance

  • Most do not fail

  • Failures tend to cluster in areas of inherent instability

Monitoring road watershed performance

  • Failure sites create a useful dataset for defining road performance through time

  • Failures define the limits of practice in various landscape situations

  • When experienced road managers retire, mission-critical knowledge could be conserved

Monitoring road watershed performance

  • Little added effort for substantial value returned

    • INFRA in place and working

    • DSRs completed

    • Related monitoring

What you get
What you get

  • Ability to determine thresholds of performance

  • Ability to determine relative risk of failure

  • Quantitative description of risks

Use topograpy to define landscape types for chi square analysis
Use Topograpy to Define Landscape Types for Chi-square Analysis

Slope:<=15%, 15-30%, 30-45%, >45%Slope Position:<=20%, 20-55%, 55-85%, 85-100%Distance to Stream:<34m, 34-74m, 74-135m, <=135m

Chi square results
Chi-Square Results:

Landscape types with fewer failures than expected were generally in gentler slope areas; those at lower slope positions and further from streams. Types with more failures than expected were generally at higher slope positions, steeper slopes, and closer to streams.

A need for more specific risk information
A Need for More Specific Risk Information

Logistic Regression Modelling:

  • Combine 509 known failures with 1008 randomly selected locations.

  • Use slope, slope position, and stream proximity to estimate relative risk of road-related landslides.

How you get it
How you get it…

  • Add DSR points and attributes to INFRA

  • Attributes of failure type, cause, coarse magnitude

How you get it1
How you get it

  • Modify description block in DSR to include:

     Failure type

     Cause

     Volume (quantity classes)

    • Total

    • To stream

    • To riparian area (within 50 m)

Cause attributes questions
Cause Attributes…Questions

  • Perpetrator or innocent bystander?

  • Context

  • Impact

    Sometimes roads catch and preventsediment delivery

Use categories created in this effort for consistency and combined analysis
