Inland Flood Protection in the Netherlands

Facing challenges of tomorrow

On Thursday, the 8th of June, the Hydraulic Engineering student association “Het Waterbouwdispuut” will host the annual symposium. This year we will focus on the inland flood protection in our country. We will look back, but more importantly, we will focus on the decades ahead of us and the challenges that these will offer. For example, very recently a new standard has been introduced for testing the safety of our flood protection system in the Netherlands. What are the consequences of such measures and how can a future engineer deal with the design restrictions in an ever changing society.
