The Bergboezem polder lies well below sea level. It is surrounded by small dikes and is kept dry by windmills and pumping stations. Unlike the surrounding polders, the Bergboezem polder is used solely for agriculture – and therefore is most suited to deliberate flooding during times of extreme rainfall.
The primary objective is to reshape the polder in such a way that a water holdback capacity of 1.2 million cubic metres is formed. The secondary objective is to turn the reshaped polder into a nature reserve. These objectives are combined in one integral development plan. RPS is currently working on the design of the new polder – including all the engineering aspects. Subsequently RPS will prepare the contract documents and represent the Water Board during the construction phase.
