Is this true? Why does limburg need dykes?
Probably because of the Maas.
what is the difference between a dike and a levee?
I think the words are synonymous when they describe embankments built to control flood waters.
Aren't levees specifically for rivers? My dictionary gives 'rivierdijk'. Dikes more at the coast?
I always wondered what a levee was. Now I know - it's a dike.
Levee normally used in the states not so much in UK and Europe where the word dyke is used
Is it wrong to start with "Even" instead of "Zelfs" here?
Yes, the Dutch even is not used like the English even in this sentence.
Levee is definitely not the correct word.
Dam, dyke, dike or embankment
