Toelichting (Engels) At the end of the very dry summer of 2003 in The Netherlands two containment dikes of polder canals failed; both dikes consisted of peat. The dike of the Wilnis location has a dense grassland cover. A sheet pile wall with board lengths up to 4.5 m, had been placed along the canal about a decade ago, intended for bank protection. Maintenance dredging of the canal to a water depth of about 2 m was carried out 1 year before the failure. The dike of the Rotterdam location was used for recreational gardening and supported some semi permanent sheds and wooden cottages. Shrubs and small trees were common on the failed dike section.
