You can contact us with your questions on flood risks, water management, management of rivers, coasts and deltas, disaster management and information management. We distinguish four fields of expertise.
When dealing with safety against flooding, we are confronted with questions like “how safe should it be?”, “how safe is it right now?” and “what can we do when disaster threatens or actually has occurred?”. These are complex questions for which we help to provide appropriate answers through the application of our knowledge and expertise in the areas of statistics, engineering, crisis management and decision making.
Where there is water, you will find people. Problems arise when there is either too much or too little water. With our knowledge and expertise in the areas of hydraulics, hydrology and morphology, we help to understand system behaviour and to identify optimal designs, layouts, and strategies to address a wide variety of water issues.
Good water management is essential for the quality of our environment. Water pollution, occurrence of water shortages or opportunities for ecological development are heavily influenced by the layout of water systems. We assess the design as well as the daily operational management of water systems, with our in depth knowledge, expertise in numerical models and modern information technology. Climate change will further impact how to take care of water management.Good water management is essential to maintain a good quality of life. Issues to be addressed may be related to too much water or too little water, but also to regional planning and development, including watercourse restoration. Water management practices can also be significantly improved through the use of modern information technology.
