The recent floodings in Germany make floodrisks and (temporary) flood defence measures a newsworthy topic (in the Netherlands). Especially after Dutch military troops helped out in Eastern Germany, for example with placing sandbags. Bas Reedijk was interviewed on the Dutch news radio station, BNR, on the BoxBarrier as an easy replacement for the heavy sandbags.
On monday the 17th, FloodProof Holland will be officially opened. The municipal councilor of Delft, Pieter Guldemond and the director of the Waterboard, Michiel van Haersma Buma will be opening the test- and demonstration site for innovative temporary flood defence systems in Delft. Various flood defence systems will be demonstrated by the participating parties in the basins.
