Newly published project fiches show progress

Newly published project fiches show progress

Along the river Scheldt, the LIFE Sparc project supports measures to protect Flanders from flooding, while enhancing tidal nature. But what does that mean, exactly?

With the publication of several project fiches, you are offered more insight into our efforts. What exactly is a flood control area, and why are we creating one in Vlassenbroek South? What’s the difference with a flood control area with reduced tides, and why was this a good option in Wal-Zwijn? How does depoldering create more room for the river, and what other measures are we taking in the Bornem Cluster?

Find out the answers to these, and many more, questions through the project fiches on:

Another fiche on the valley of the Durme is in the makes.
