Escravos Seaport Induatrial Complex Topography
The Topography of the proposed ESIC-1 location is characterized by low slopes, low topography, high mean wave/tidal heights, and unconfined aquifers. Its height is about 8-10m high on the western fringe close to the Escravos and Nana Channels and slopes gently eastward between 6-7m to the various riverlets that adorns its eastern side. Both coastal fringes are prone to perennial tidal and river flooding. The low land existing settlement/project site cannot accommodate the re-planning of the site. Hence, massive sand filling up to 3 metres will be required so as to preempt flooding emergency that may arise from earth warming/sea rising due to depletion of ozone layer.
