  • The Shanghai Sinkhole, how will this effect DL?

    Google is loaded with articles on this topic.

    "Things aren't looking good for Shanghai, either. Located on China's coast, this sprawling city was built on swamplands surrounding the mouth of the Yangze River. Originally a small fishing village, Shanghai began to draw more and more residents in the mid-19th century. Modest homes were replaced by breathtaking skyscrapers (not to mention some of the best shopping venues in Asia), and Shanghai soon became the most densely populated city in the world, housing over 20 million people by 2001. The city was handling rapid expansion just fine until the early 20th century, when wells became a major source of water and the underlying sediment deposit was disturbed. According to PBS, Shanghai sank roughly eight feet between 1921 and 1965, which equals about two inches per year. The city still continues to drop at a rate of about half an inch per year.

    Maybe it's time to go with an old unused concept for California:

    Port Disney...now that would be something for Hong Kong to compete with. In case Shanghai submerges, at least the park will be intact!

          darnet. Horizons wasn't good enough was it. It didn't develop a sinkhole under it in 1998 for nothing you know.

            with proper foundations the park should be safe. I don't see a problem here
