High Water Protection Alongside the Dommel

Calculating with SOBEK exactly which areas become inundated

From hydrological model calculations of the upper Dommel area, it appeared that along the Dommel there may be inundations within the built-up area should a T100 situation occur. With the help of a SOBEK model, Iv-Infra determined the normative water level in the project area that usually occurs once in every 100 years. This has been completed for the current climate scenario and before 2050. In the same SOBEK model, flood calculations have been made to determine which areas inundate at high water. These results have been further processed and analysed with the aid of GIS.
