In the previous chapter we discussed the design and construction of flood defenses and flood barriers in the first 21 years of the Dutch Delta Plan. We use the realization of the Delta Plan as an example for the enormous development of flood defenses and flood barriers in a relatively short time. In this chapter, we conclude our review of the Delta Plan flood barriers by looking at various storm surge barriers. As in the previous chapters, we will also assess the safety and security risks associated with these flood barriers and we extend our safety and security risk table accordingly.
