Coastal Embankment

Coastal Embankment

To firstly prepare for a tsunami that may occur frequently (once every several decades to once every hundred years or more), we are constructing a coastal embankment of around 9 km in length and a height of T. P. plus 7.2 m, jointly with the central government and Miyagi Prefectural government. The embankment is designed so that, even in the event of a tsunami that exceeds our expectations, its breakdown or collapse time can be extended or the possibility of its total collapse is reduced. Completion is scheduled for FY 2016.
