Zeeland’s Delta Works
The origin of the Delta Works
Oosterschelde storm surge barrier
Grevelingendam connects Schouwen-Duiveland and Goeree-Overflakkee and provides protection from flooding. Since the dam weakens the currents in the Grevelingenmeer, Volkerak and Haringvliet inlets, pressure on the other Delta Works is reduced. Not far from the dam is the Watersnoodmuseum, dedicated to the North Sea Flood of 1953. The museum tells the story of the North Sea Flood and the Delta Works.
