New natural drainage system in Province of Antwerp, funded by TRIPLE C

Thursday 13 August 2020

Province of Antwerp: On 10th August 2020 the last conventional drainage system in the project was rebuilt to a level-controlled system in the municipality of Kalmthout (catchment Kleine Aa-Molenbeek). The works were done during an exceptional heatwave, in a 4th consecutive summer with drought and high temperatures for Belgium. During the works the temperature soared to 36C. The work was rewarded with heavy rain showers in the days following, so the level-controlled drainage system could immediately prove its use.
