Maps for waters and dykes

The 'legger' consists of a collection of maps that show all of the surface waters, bridges and dykes in our area and who is responsible for maintaining them. It also shows how deep the waters are and how high the dykes should be.

The ‘legger’ shows who is responsible for the maintenance of a specific area. This could be the responsibility of the Public Regional Water Authority Amstel, Gooi and Vecht. On the other hand, it could be the responsibility of a different water authority, the province or a farmer with fields along the water.

The maps helps the water authority determine which dykes need to be strengthened and ditches need to be deepened. The ‘legger’ is compiled on the basis of, among others, information in the ‘Keur’ (water authority by-laws). The rules and regulations of the water authority regarding dykes and the water are drawn up in the ‘Keur’. We also use the ‘legger’ when issuing a permit.
