Issue

Flood hazard

An increased flood hazard because the flood defence does not meet the requirements and/or due to extreme conditions.

The improvement of waterworks is often aimed at individual waterworks instead of a whole dike path or multiple waterworks. A new law, the Water Act, requires assessment based on the whole dike range. Compiling such a safety statement is difficult.
