Breaking of a dike

Updated on 06/09/2018
Sens commun
Partial or total destruction of a dike. The causes of failure can be technical (defects in design, construction or materials, ageing of the structure), natural (following earthquakes, exceptional floods, a storm, a marine submersion, landslides, weakening by the burrows of animals) or human (not enough preliminary studies and project control, error of use, lack of monitoring and maintenance, malicious mischief).
according to the Departmental Land Directorate (DDT) of Côtes-d'Armor
