The deposits of varved clay in glacial Lake Albany have a long history of instability. Recent failures have been both natural and man-made. Slumping, creeping, and rotational sliding of the clay strata are ubiquitous and typical of these deposits. The affected area lies along New York’s Hudson River from the Albany-Troy area at the north almost to Poughkeepsie at the south, a distance of 209 km. Despite a long history of problems, some construction activity is still done improperly. Analyses associated with environmental impact statements may reduce potential problems, but a properly promulgated general study of the problem might be a better approach.
