Enjoy everything about the new coast
In cooperation with the province Noord-Holland the Hoogheemraadschap Hollands Noorderkwartier explains, how, in the future, we can continuing living and working below sealevel. Without dikes and dunes Noord-Holland can't exist. For thousands years the bottom descends and the sealevel rises. In this century an extreme quick rising of the sea is expected due to the greenhouse effect. It is getting hotter on earth, as a result of which ice on the poles melt and the amount of seawater is increasing. Already now we must heighten up the dikes and make them heavier. Lots more has to be done. How? Come and have a look into our ideas in Dijk te Kijk.
