A open connection between the tributaries and the Grote Nete

In the past, the Grote Nete was embanked throughout its entire valley. This caused the open connections between the river and its tributaries to be lost. By removing the levee and the discharge constructions, the tributaries can regain contact with the Grote Nete.

In the past, the Grote Nete was embanked throughout its entire valley. This caused the open connections between the river and its tributaries to be lost. And that caused local flooding while hindering the natural functioning of the valley. By removing the levee and the discharge constructions at certain points, the tributaries can regain contact with the Grote Nete. This intervention will only be implemented in Tussen Hellebrug en Herenbossen and in Zammelsbroek, where it will not increase the risk of flooding. By restoring the connection between the tributaries and the Grote Nete, the fish here will once again be able to move freely.
