Analysis of Effects of Adjustable Weirs: Opportunities to Retain and Store Water

With this pilot project Waterboard Zuiderzeeland implements the principles of the Dutch policy “WB21” (Water Policy 21st Century): first retain, second store, and finally discharge of water. The project concluded that adjustable weirs can reduce and delay peak discharges without agicultural crop growth reduction due to increased soil moisture content upstream of the weirs; adjustable […]
