How do we plan on protecting you against flooding in the coming years? And how do we plan to ensure clean, safe and sufficient water? Find out more about this in our 2022-2027 water management programme.
Keeping you safe
Large parts of our service area lie below sea level. The water authority protects you against flooding by maintaining the dykes.
We treat waste water to ensure clean water in our service area. We do this for recreational and agricultural purposes and to benefit nature.
Climate change and the city
Short periods of very heavy rainfall occur increasingly often, leading to problems in the cities. We are working on smart solutions.
Water authority tax
Water authority tax pays for flood protection, treatment of waste water and proper water levels in the polders for nature and agricultural uses.
Maps for waters and dykes
The 'legger' consists of a collection of maps that show all of the surface waters and dykes in our area and who is responsible for maintaining them.
Water authority by-laws
Each water authority has its own rules and regulations about the water and dykes. These define what you may and may not do in and around our water.
