Did you ever see a huge rubber to protect the land from flooding? Get to the Netherlands, near Ramspol (the Netherlands, IJsseldelta).

Dutch waterengineers created this inflatable dike near the N50, between Ketelmeer and Zwarte meer.
They are of course masters in dike building!

The moment a storm comes up, you get to see the inflatable dike in action. It's a good reason to hope for bad weather.
