How to Manage Floodwaves in the Dutch Meuse: Future Measures to Reduce the Inconvenience of Inundationsby J. H. Gerretsen,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water
Abstract: This study showed that in the Gravelmeuse the combination of nature development and reducing of inundation inconvenience is possible. In the framework of the obliged supply of a fixed amount of gravel to the Dutch gravel market, the summer bed will be widened and the winter bed will be deepened. The excess lowering of the water levels created in this way allow that the layout of nature development projects is possible. The policy analysis led also to the view that the summer bed of the Sandmeuse has to be deepened considerably and the flood plain has to be lowered (secondary river) at places where nature development is projected.
