3 Waters: Shreeni Benjamin

The strategy primarily focusses on retaining the saltwater intrusion by making two separate layers of the e-concrete embankments at strategic locations higher than the level of the Spring tides (3.5m) and the High-high-tides (6m). The embankments also help conserve the rain-water diluting the salinity of the land throughout for two to three seasonal cycles. The rain-water pools generated after the construction of the first layer of embankments will be flooded by the High-high tides during the monsoon, which helps form a brackish water zone promoting the growth of the native vegetation and the habitat for the local and the migratory birds.

The drawing was a part of the Master of Landscape Architecture thesis project for the Landscape Conservation of the island of Alia-bet.
