Environmental degradation often occurs either from natural phenomena such as earthquakes, floods from surface or underground water, but it often happens that the human factor itself can be the cause in cases where, by developing certain activities, it destroys the structure and texture of the environment's landscape. As a concrete case of this study, the limestone source in the village of Pasomë is taken, where limestone is being exploited, the study aims to find solutions through which the sliding of the side slopes and the degradation of the environment will be minimized, since this directly affects the life and activity of the inhabitants of the village, over 70% of whom are engaged in agriculture and farming. The purpose of this paper is to find adequate solutions for the rehabilitation of the side slopes of the limestone source by creating the geometry of the side slopes with the safety factor allowed according to geotechnical standards to enable the re-cultivation of the source area where limestone was extracted because the vegetation plays an important role in creating a better environment for the inhabitants of the village and in general, as well as the preservation of flora and fauna.
