Research to reduce flood risk Reimerswaal

Due to its low location, the municipality of Reimerswaal has been designated as a vulnerable area for floods. As Reimerswaal is an important infrastructure link (roads, railway line, electricity, gas, water), flooding of this area will have major consequences for the inhabitants of Reimerswaal and the inhabitants of Zeeland west of the canal of Hansweert.

The FRAMES project has examined the vulnerability of the Reimerswaal area and the consequences of flooding to the critical infrastructure. The goal was to come up with a number of cost-effective solutions and designs that reduce vulnerability.
