Difference between dykes and leveesː Levees protect land that would normally be dry from flooding. Dikes protect land that would normally be under water from flooding. Dikes are most often associated with the sea and areas of land below sea level. Levees are most often associated with rivers. Sourceː English.stackexchange.com
