Project launched on storm surge protection and new harbour environment in Svendborg (Denmark)
A new project, called 'The Blue Edge' (Den Blå Kant) has started to become Svendborg's new common harbour space between the city and the sea, aiming at flood and cloudburst protection as well as an improved urban environment at the same time. Three sluiceways and a belt of fixed and mobile dikes will protect the area against storm surges of up to three meters above the average sea level. The project will also establish emergency flood channels leading stormwater runoff from the city directly into the harbour basin. The most relevant project information is accessible through the Danish Climate Change Adaptation Portal.
