Water management involves much more than building dykes and windmills. Our work also entails water level and water quality management, adapting to climate change, dredging, and wastewater treatment. We welcome visits to these projects by international delegations.

Dike monitoring
Dike monitoring

The ‘LiveDijk’ in Groningen is a dike equipped with sensor systems, which measure the strength of the dikes and can also predict their strength in the future. The system contributes to better control and maintenance of the dike.

Dike improvement
Dike improvement

The regional water authority ‘waterschap Rivierenland’ is conducting a large number of dike improvement projects in its area. Innovative techniques are used to reinforce the dikes, such as geotextiles and dike dowels.

Urban water storage
Urban water storage

To relieve the pressure on Rotterdam's sewer system, ‘water squares’ are being created within the city. When it rains heavily, excess water can be collected in special tanks under these squares.

Purified sewage
Purified sewage

Purified sewage is more or less ‘dead’ water. The water authority aerates this water and passes it through several ponds before it is released. In this way, the water collects more nutrients and organic material, so that it will not harm the ecology of the area.

Pure water factory
Pure water factory

The Puurwaterfabriek is the largest electrodeionization facility in the world. It trasforms wastewater into ultra-pure water, which is so pure that even the minerals and chalk normally present in drinking water are removed.
