Issue

Flood hazard

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

The area behind the dike around Munnikenland floods during high water levels from the river. To guarantee the safety of the residents, measures are required.

Solution

Overflow areas and dike relocation

By moving the Waaldike, the river Waal has more space to discharge water during high water levels. The measure reduces the water level by 11 cm.
