Description
A booklet summarizing mine subsidence.
  • Mine Subsidence Guide
  • We designed and illustrated this guide, which explains to homeowners what mine subsidence is, and how it may impact their home. Over the last forty years, suburban metro area homebuilding has expanded onto the land above areas that had once been mined for coal. As the coal beds played out and land prices increased, homes were built, sometimes resulting in dangerous situations. Foundations would crack or even fall tens of feet into the ground as mine workings below them collapsed, causing thousands of dollars in property damage and endangering lives.
