As of 22 September, Stichting FloodControl IJkdijk will initiate a new field trial, in order to study the phenomenon of flow slide at September 22th.

Field experiments by Stichting IJkdijk have shown that innovative monitoring makes it possible to look inside dikes. The partially unsound Ommelanderzeedijk, which protects northern Groningen against Wadden Sea flooding, is monitored by three different systems.

Geotextile positioned vertically in a dike can stop piping. That has been proven by an experiment with the textile on the IJkdijk.
