Abstract
The study summarized in Bureau of Mines report of investigations 7964 was a direct result of the Buffalo Creek disaster of February 1972, which took the lives of 125 West Virginians. A task force was created to analyze the West Virginia embankment failure and to identify other potentially hazardous sites. The long-term objective was to develop means to determine modes of embankment failure and to develop means for safe disposal of the coal waste materials.
