Waterschap Rivierenland

We provide dry feet and plenty of clean water. We do this by making and maintaining strong dikes, keeping the water level, ensuring clean surface water and safe (water) road management. At Waterschap Rivierenland we have prepared for 4 types of calamities:
– (Imminent) flooding due to extremely high water on the major rivers. To such an extent that even the dikes can no longer cope with it.
– (Imminent) flooding in the polder due to extreme rainfall. Such that more rain falls than can be discharged.
– Pollution of the surface water. For example due to illegal discharges.
– Failure of pumping stations, treatment plants or other installations that we need to perform our tasks.
