The Flooding Risk in the City of Relizane (Algeria)

The Flooding Risk in the City of Relizane (Algeria) AbstractThe town of Relizane was built near Oued Mina, upstream of which is erected a dam of Sidi M'hamed Benaouda; while the city was protected in its time by a dike dating from the colonial period. Local authorities have recovered the land near the floodplain by building a new dike replacing the old one. However, flood risks persist on the city. Flood risk management plans for this new area should be provided for better protection of citizens and property. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of Valahia University of Targoviste, Geographical Series de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThe town of Relizane was built near Oued Mina, upstream of which is erected a dam of Sidi M'hamed Benaouda; while the city was protected in its time by a dike dating from the colonial period. Local authorities have recovered the land near the floodplain by building a new dike replacing the old one. However, flood risks persist on the city. Flood risk management plans for this new area should be provided for better protection of citizens and property.
