Member of the Executive Board and acting dyke reeve of the Water Board Scheldestromen, Denis Steijaert of Scheldestromen Water Board and Chairman of the Executive Board John Dane of HZ University of Applied Sciences signed a cooperation agreement on Wednesday 27 November, in which it is agreed they will collaborate intensively in the field of asset management. Asset management ensures optimal management of the water board’s assets such as embankments, roads, water treatment and (water) systems.

The first project that will be tackled is the improvement of the long-term replacement plan of 5,000 divers. Divers are concrete pipes that connect two watercourses.
