Re-Purposing the Netherlands' Dike System For Power Generation 132

vikingpower writes "Built in reaction to a major flood that killed 1,800 in the '50s, the Dutch system of dikes, sluices, surge barriers, and dams has been dubbed 'one of the seven wonders of the modern world' by the American Society of Engineers.

Any civil engineer's mouth will probably be watering when thinking of the mega-projects this could give rise to."
