Delfland Water Board

The Delfland Water Board is one of the 25 Water Boards in the Netherlands. The area in which Delfland operates is bordered by the North Sea, the Nieuwe Waterweg (a river) and the Berkel en Rodenrijs, Zoetermeer and Wassenaar line. This is an area of 41,000 hectares, where roughly 1.4 million people live and work, and approximately 40,000 businesses are established. This makes the Delfland region one of the most densely populated and most highly industrialised areas of The Netherlands. The region is furthermore renowned for its extensive glasshouse horticulture.

Delfland's key tasks are: sufficient water, sturdy dikes, clean water and treated waste water. Initially these do not seem to have much in common. But appearances are often deceptive. Generally you cannot view one task separately from the other. The manner in which you construct and maintain quays, for example, has consequences for the quality of the water. Which is why Delfland always performs its tasks using a "broad view". In other words: taking into account all possible relevant factors. This is also known as integrated water management. To that end, Delfland also strives for cooperation with other authorities and institutions.

Well executed key tasks, cooperation and consideration for nature. Those are the three directives of Delfland's policy. The Delfland Water Board thereby does not limit itself to the struggle against water, but also for maintaining water. Because no water means no life.
