In the present study an attempt has been made for find out the reason of slope failure on the basis of site investigations, experimental and design analysis to provide the standard geotechnical properties of materials with the suitable side slope. Some geotechnical characteristics of soil as Grain size, Optimum moisture content and Cohesive strength has been taken in consideration to design and construct the high embankment up to 20m. The optimization of side slope with required factor of safety as per IRC guideline has been also attempted in the present study. Treatment of embankment slopes for erosion control is considered to prevent from damage due erosion from rain and wind.
