The Delta works in the Dutch-Flemish Delta of the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt are among the most iconic monuments of our country, in part because of the strong, defining image of the dams and dikes. Striking, in particular, is the Eastern Scheldt Barrier, a wonder of the world, born from the desire to make the Delta safe after the North Sea flood of 1953. After the realization of the Delta Works, a large number of new projects for water safety were realized about which very little is known. Most of these new generation projects, realized between 1985 and the present, are not just merely about water safety.
