VietNamNet Bridge – With increased land subsidence, HCM City needs to build dykes like the ones used in the Netherlands to prevent tides and floods, experts have urged.
HCM City Mayor Nguyen Thien Nhan said MONRE has surveyed the soil and terrain conditions at 17 points in HCMC. The monitoring shows continued subsidence at all points. Subsidence of up to 30 cm in the last 10 years has been found in two places.
“If the soil sinks by 1 cm per annum and the sea water level rises by 0.5 cm per annum, or 1.5 cm in total, the difference between the earth surface and sea water level would be up to 45 cm. If so, the problem will be very serious,” Nhan said. Continue reading “Will HCM City build dykes similar to those used in the Netherlands?”
