Flood Risk Sloe AreaResearch of flood risk for the Sloe area and possible shelter area for inhabitants of the Bathtub of Ritthem. Due to its low location the Bathtub of Ritthem will be severely flooded in case of a dike breach and is designated as a risk area.
Within this FRAMES pilot the suitability of the Sloe area as a temporary shelter location for residents of the ‘bathtub Ritthem’ in the event of flooding was assessed. To determine the suitability of the Sloe area, flood scenarios have been investigated, evacuation options were analysed and a communication plan was developed. Conclusion is that the suitability of the Sloe area as a temporary shelter location for residents of bathtub Ritthem is limited. The relatively high altitude is an advantage, but the capacity, facilities and distance are less favourable.
