Abstract

Water is essential for human life. When talking about drainage systems, water can also become a threat to human society, in particular if it leaves its boundaries. This gives rise to the question of how to manage open water systems in such a way that the chance of flooding is limited. The easy solution would be to make the (storage) canals sufficiently large, so that they can store all the excess water until it can be drained off. When looking at Dutch society, this is of course not a realistic solution. Society is expanding and therefore nature is getting more restrictions. Of course it is possible to change the present situation of the open water system in such a way that there is more storage for the excess water inside the system. However, there are many restrictions, like land use and water quality, which have to be taken into account. Decision Support Systems (DSS-policy) have been built to help answering such long term questions. Another question is how to manage the open water system in the present situation, when meteorological boundary conditions disturb the water system. Decision Support Systems (DSS-operational) have been built to help answering such short term questions.
