Flood barrier manila

ABSTRACT
The Integrated Flood Control and Coastal Defense Project of Manila Bay (see Figure 1) has multiple purposes. First, a
coastal barrier protects the coastline against flooding from the ocean. Furthermore it is a city waterfront providing an
attractive urban development, areas for industrial growth like an airport and seaport, and it connects Metro-Manila with
Bataan Province via an expressway. This paper presents the design of the flood protection of the first of the five intended
islands of this project, located most eastern and closest to Metro-Manila.
