Theme C) Regional water systems

Regional river systems draining into major rivers are an important, but often overlooked component of the Dutch drainage system. As a project group, we focus on these regional river systems to:

  • get a quantitative understanding of their morphodynamic and hydrological functioning to contribute to the design and construction of stream restoration projects.
  • understand how these regional systems interact with the larger rivers. Stream interventions that affect drainage characteristics and/or sediment transport will affect the larger rivers that such river system is draining into.
  • try experimental building with nature approaches in small systems prior to large-scale implementation in the larger rivers.
