Brookings, Ore. -- There's a slow-moving landslide on the Oregon coast, one that will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix.

The Brookings City Manager, Gary Milliman, says work will begin on their waste water treatment plant this summer.

He says that's because the plant is located next to a slide and the earth won't stop shifting "We received about 300-thousand in grant money to help with the cost of the project, and it's about a 900-thousand dollar project." said Milliman.

A retaining wall with pylons that reach through bed rock will be installed this summer.

The city manager said Brookings now tests soil and likelihood of erosion before constructing any developments.
