Soil collapse is usually associated with human activities such as irrigation, construction of canals, or disposal of wastewater that introduce water into a relatively dry environment. Although soil collapse is generally not life threatening, it can cause severe damage to canals, dams, pipelines, roads, buildings, fields, etc. Collapsible soils have been studied in several places in Utah.

The purpose of this study is to provide a collapsible soil hazard map along the southern Wasatch Front from the Point of the Mountain on the north to the city of Nephi on the south. This map delineates the alluvial fans along the Front and ranks them according to their potential of containing collapsible soil. Additional areas found to contain collapsible soil, that are not associated with alluvial fans, are also included.
