A combination of earthflow and slump has impacted College Street SE, located just east of the campus of Valley City State University. Failure of a high slope (right), already oversteepened both by its position on a cutbank on the Sheyenne River and by construction of this street, was initiated in early 1993 following heavy snowmelt and spring rains.
