Issue

Flood hazard

The Lekdijk (dike) is rejected on stability and has to be strengthened. The strengthening can not cost any living space because the municipality has plans the develop the nearby village.

Solution

Climate Dike

A Climate Dike is a lot wider than a normal dike, but no living space gets lost as new building area is created. A Climate Dike is a 100 times stronger than the standard norm prescribes. This means the dike can last longer than a few decades, even when the climate changes.

Pros

  • There is area for new developments, multifunctional use of space.
  • A very robust dike with a long lifespan
