Over 30% of the Netherlands lies below sea level. Floodings of sea and riverwater caused many victims as for example the 1953 flood disaster during which 1850 poeple were drowned. Since then dutch people has realised that they can't fight against the water but the can work with it.

The main goal of the waterworks (Delta programme) is to protect our country against high water and keep our zone safe and sound.
