The Netherlands is extremely successful at an international level when it comes to flood protection. The country has a large number of specialists available in every conceivable area: from the design and construction of dikes, forecasting systems, and decision-supporting systems, through to crisis management, measurement systems and evacuation.



The water manager can use our forecasting systems to estimate the probability of  flooding more accurately. More appropriate measures can therefore be taken at an earlier stage. Damage and injury can subsequently be limited, and sometimes avoided completely. At the present time, observation, measuring, interpretation, forecasting and taking action are often separate links in the chain. Flood Control 2015 brings them together to create a single stronger chain.

The day-to-day management of water systems can also be substantially improved by using Flood Control 2015. The set-up of pumps and pumping stations can be more accurate, dike improvements can be planned more efficiently. Efficiency increases, maintenance costs fall. Authorities are also able to prepare much more effectively for possible calamities. Training can take place daily, at a fraction of the current cost.
