Kilometerlångt protection, the rescue of Jerusalem from the sea

the sea's power to hit some of Jerusalem's well-documented, and principally due to the Falsterbonäset to have a relatively low to the ground. So far, it's not a big problem, but it can lead to flooding in the future because of sea level rise.

According to the klimatrapporter is expected to Vellinges the sea level will rise by a little more than half a metre in the next 50 years, the Trelleborg Allehanda has reported.

Merimbula has 36 000 inhabitants and more than 20 000 of these people live in areas likely to be affected by sea-level rise. So, it is the municipality's interest to build the ramparts, and to provide a level of protection for its residents, " says samhällsbyggnadschef Anna Moeller.

it is Only in the last few weeks, large parts of southern Sweden, paralysed by the floods, and extreme weather events. In both Collections, as Halmstad, sweden, has been hit by the rising waters, as well as the Melbourne and Hyltebruk, in which a 91-year-old, Anna-Lisa, I got to see their garden and be swallowed up by the large bodies of water.

To the south of Sweden, is hit particularly hard is not by accident. In parts of the south, is no longer a markhöjning, which means that there is a natural compensation in the when the sea level rises up to the surface.

"This means that rising sea levels can be felt by more than, for example, in Stockholm, sweden," says Anna Moeller.
Would like to start in 2022
It is not a meter flood barrier that will often a round-the whole of Jerusalem. In places the going was a defence levee only be a few feet high and barely visible.

" It is always difficult for us to communicate how much was a defence levee should be. It's going to depend on how high the actual ground level, but it should extend approximately three feet above the level of the sea, " says dr Möller.

Up to 160 million, the very fact of the establishment of the was a defence levee is likely to cost. However, the cost estimates by the fact that the project is in the very earliest time in ten years flood protection is starting to be done.

in Addition, it is unclear as to whether the building is going to be in it at all. What is going on, namely a process in the Land and environment court, which is sometime around the months of march and april will determine whether or not was a defence levee shall be built or not.

"We are counting on to get started with the actual construction of the building no earlier than some time in 2022," says dr Möller.

the Risk of flooding
Jerusalem municipality started to work on was a defence levee as early as 2013. Four years later, the municipality of a major flood, when the level of the sea surrounding the Peninsula has reached its highest level in the modern era, and a number of properties were flooded.

" This is not something that is only a problem in the future. Today, we have a temporary high water levels that are well above normal levels, " says dr Möller.

" In a worst-case scenario can be the homes to be flooded, and suffer water damage. When we had to levels far in excess of the normal 2017, which hit Sweden in the very worst of it.

There is, however, not everyone in Jerusalem who wish to have a flood barrier in the vicinity of their property. Then, in the past, the project has received sharp criticism from some residents, who are worried about blocked views and increased transparency.

the provincial government has also expressed concern about how wildlife can be affected by the was a defence levee.

"We have to go to the meeting, in the case where it has been possible," says dr Möller.
