De Lotto, M. (author)
The Room for the River project stands as a stepping stone in water management strategies, distinguished by a paradigmatic shift in Dutch water culture towards decentralization of the decision-making process and spatial quality embedded in spatial planning projects. The research presents a comprehensive analysis of the program, focusing on the...

Highlighted by the recent 2021 flood events in Europe, this research takes the<br/>momentum to underline the necessity for radical solutions that embrace uncertain and extreme discharges at the core of planning and design frameworks. Building upon existing Adaptive Management practices in the Netherlands, this research takes the experience of...

In the wake of climate change and rising water levels the city of Dordrecht is looking for alternative ways to prepare for coming threats other than keep raising the current dikes. In an exploration a suggestion is made to use the southern side of the island as a buffer for excess water. This research takes that suggestion a step further and...

Over the course of centuries, river systems have been heavily trained for the purpose of safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and improves navigation. Traditionally, dikes are used to be reinforced and heightened to protect countries from ever higher flood levels. Other types of solutions than technical engineering solutions, such as...

A large part of the flood defences in The Netherlands does not meet the present safety standards. In 2014 the delta programme has proposed new safety standards, which are based on the flood risk approach. These new safety standards will for a lot of river dikes be stricter than the currently prevailing safety standards. A lot of work has to be...

Over the last centuries, Dutch rivers such as the Rhine have been heavily trained for the purpose of the safe discharge of water, sediment and ice, and navigability. After the notorious flood events of 1993 and 1995 along the Rhine, new large-scale river works were initiated, such as the Room for the River (RfR) programme, to increase flood...

Large-scale river projects are executed on the Dutch rivers to meet increased flood conveyance standards. Because the projects bring variation to the standardised river profile, they are expected to induce increased river dynamics. The consequences are higher dredging costs and more disruption to inland navigation. All river intervention plans...

In the Netherlands and many other developed countries, flood management is transitioning from sectoral engineering approaches to more integrated approaches. The 2.3 billion Euro Room for the River programme plays an important role in this transition, because it is the first large scale infrastructure programme in the Netherlands that breaks with...

Hietbrink, L. (author)
Due to climate change the water level in the Dutch rivers will rise the next century. In the current situation flood defence systems have reached their maximum capacity. The Deltacommissie (2008) recommends measurements in most parts of the river landscape. The trend is to give the rivers more space instead of strengthening the water defence....

De Jongste, A.L. (author)
The area of the Merwedes is a transition zone between a tide-dominated area and a river-dominated area. With increasing river discharge, the influence of river flow dominates in this part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The composition of the river bed of the Merwedes is also a transitional area, because of the presence of both sand and mud. It is...

Hydraulic structures are present in the designs of different Room for the River projects in the Netherlands. Examples are longitudinal weirs, groins, summer dikes and weirs in the inlet of a side channel. Morphological simulations with Delft3D are frequently carried out to investigate the effect of such projects on for example hindrance for...

Different measures will be executed in the framework PKB “Room for the River” in order to lower the water levels in the river area during normative high discharges. The plan Ontpoldering Noordwaard is one of them and has as aim to inundate parts of the Noordwaard during high discharges. Water coming from the Nieuwe Merwede as result of high...

The 'Room for the River' strategy for Dutch river management asks for more information about morphodynamics and vegetation succession in natural rivers. In order to obtain such information, the Lower Volga River in Russia is chosen as a natural reference river for the Dutch Waal River. Objective of the project Morphodynamics Lower and Waal is to...
