KETA SEA DEFENSE
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The Keta Sea Defense Program was performed to protect and stabilize the shoreline from Keta to Hlorve in the Republic of Ghana, West Africa. GLDD completed this design and construct project using two demountable cutter suction dredges, the Alabama and the Utah. The main goals for this project entailed preventing chronic and periodic coastal erosion and flooding, reclaiming land from the Keta Lagoon to expand town and village territories, and building a road/causeway linking the villages from Keta to Hlorve.
