Measures to counteract fluid subsidence at Dordtsche Kil
Hollandse Delta Water Board
The sea defences along the Dordtsche Kil were prone to the fluid subsidence failure mechanism. The Water Board decided that a large-scale, two layer reinforcement project was needed to guarantee the exterior stability. Thanks to these measures, the residents of the Eiland van Dordrecht and the Hoeksche Waard are now properly protected again.
