 Phase Two Construction
The A418 dike joins the existing A154 dike to the north and East Island to the south.
Construction methods were the same as those used in the award-winning A154 dike — various sizes of rockfill, a central concrete cut-off-wall, grout, and monitoring instrumentation — which was completed in 2002.
Construction equipment was brought to the site over the 2005 winter road, and included heavy mobile equipment, the crushing facility, and the dredge.

To protect the remaining marshes from these daily fluctuations, dikes are built around the remaining marshes and wetlands to allow manager to stabilize water levels at a proper depth to allow emergent and other wetland plants to grow.
Dikes are built with normal construction equipment such as draglines, dump trucks, and bulldozers.
A marsh, once protected with a dike, can be managed to stabilize the water levels, lowered to allow good vegetation growth during the proper growing season, then raised as necessary to make the vegetation available to migratory birds.

Construction of a dike requires that it is high enough to protect against an extreme flood.
The dikes stand on their own as the basic first line defense for floods up to a 20-year recurrence period irrespective of whether TGP is built or not.
The total length of the dike considered by this Project is 170.2 km of which the bank protection works cover 30.6 km, comprising 18.9 km in the City area and the rest in the Suburban areas, exclusive the portion along the Hannan Dike Section which is not part of this Project.

 SWC Research Papers
When people consider the environmental impacts caused by dike construction and marsh conversion in the Skagit delta, they usually only consider impacts that have occurred on the converted land behind the dikes.
The loss inside the dikes was significant, amounting to 16.3 acres of prime channel habitat for juvenile salmonids and other estuarine fish, but 20.5 acres of channel habitat were lost outside of the dikes.
They have changed since the delta began to be diked in the 1890s due to the influence of the dikes on the movement of water, sediment, and large woody debris-and all of these elements interact to shape tidal channel and marsh geomorphology, and consequently the habitat of a great variety of estuarine dependent animals.

 Ministry of Environment - Water Stewardship Division - Flood Hazard Management - Sandbag Dike Construction
A sandbag dike first requires the builder to dig a "bonding trench" by removing a strip of soil from the middle of the foundation material.
A sandbag dike should be three times wider than it is high.
For example, if the dike needs to be one metre high, the base should be at least three metres in width.
