The hereby paper presents the rehabilitation of a land area degraded by landslide and unfit garbage disposalin the proximity of running waters in the Cluj-Napoca area. Soil degradation through landslide occurred in thespring of 2005, as a consequence of the heavy rainfall, the clogged up sewage network of Cluj and theunammended sidewalks for decades. Under these circumstances, the water flood on the streets, resulted from theheavy rainfall, spilled in the nearby gardens, causing severe land dislocations in the proximity of unregulated andgarbage- clogged streams. The re-soiling of this degraded land required at first, the regulation of the streamlocated in the vicinity of the slid surface, then stopping the landslide by building a supporting wall, drawing offthe pluvial waters from the damaged area through a pipe- network flowing over into the stream in the vicinity ofthe land (with a 6% slope of surface). In order to maintain the land stability, earth moving works wereperformed, the slopes and terraces were overgrown with grass, deep- rooting tree species were planted, thestream is permanently cleaned of the upstream garbage while the rehabilitated area is constantly under carefulsurveillance.
