DEVELOPMENT OF SHALLOW ZONES IN LAKES

In the Ketelmeer (Lake) and Zwarte Meer, shallow zones in the lakes have been created to develop ecological water quality and to maintain fish stocks. Adjacent to these shallow waters, reed zones have been provided, in which birds can brood.

For the purpose of developing the shallow zones, GEO2 Engineering B.V. has been commissioned by the construction firm Van Der Herik Sliedrecht, to make calculations of settlement in order to determine the necessary quantity of sand. In addition GEO2 carries out periodic evaluation of the measured data for the sand beds, to monitor whether the settlements conform to expectations.
