Land reclamation, also known as land fill (not to be confused with a landfill), is the process of creating new land from ocean, riverbeds, or lake beds. The land reclaimed is known as reclamation ground or land fill.
Land reclamation can be achieved with a number of different methods. The most simple method involves simply filling the area with large amounts of heavy rock and/or cement, then filling with clay and dirt until the desired height is reached. The process is called "infilling" and the material used to fill the space is generally called "infill". Draining of submerged wetlands is often used to reclaim land for agricultural use. Deep cement mixing is used typically in situations in which the material displaced by either dredging or draining may be contaminated and hence needs to be contained.
The reclamation of land from surrounding waters is used in Singapore to expand the city-state’s limited area of usable, natural land. Land reclamation is most simply done by adding material such as rocks, soil and cement to an area of water; alternatively submerged wetlands or similar biomes can be drained. In Singapore the former has been the most common method, with sand the predominant material used.
Land reclamation allows for increased development and urbanization. The use of land reclamation allows territories to expand outwards by recovering land from the sea. Land reclamation also allows for the preservation of local historic and cultural communities, as building pressures are reduced by the addition of reclaimed land.
Since the early 19th century, land reclamation has been used in Singapore extensively so in the last half-century in response to the city-state’s rapid economic growth. In 1960, Singapore was home to fewer than two million people. But to keep up with the increase in population (as well as a concurrent surge in the country’s economy and industrialization efforts), Singapore has increased its land mass by 22% since independence in 1965, with land continuously being set aside for future use. Though Singapore’s native population is no longer increasing as rapidly as it was in the mid-twentieth century, foreigners continue to flood into the city as the economy thrives, resulting in a continued investment in land reclamation by the government. The government thus plans to expand the city-state by an additional 7-8% by 2030.
