Technical Experts meet in Drenthe

On 23rd and 24th of August an international delegation of water management experts visited Drenthe as part of a Topsoil tour to exchange knowledge and ideas. Following a short stop in Bremen, representatives from Danish, German and English municipalities, water authorities and knowledge institutes joined their Dutch colleagues to visit various locations and see how Drenthe is approaching issues related to climate change. 
The programme included:

  • Water management and soil remediation technologies in the urban environment of Hoogeveen
  • Water quality measures in the Drentsche Aa (a National Park and Natura 2000 area)
  • A farm visit with an emphasis on the relationship between argriculture, water and soil
  • Adaptation of the sewage system in the City of Groningen

All-in all the Topsoil tour was an inspiring experience for all participants!
