Presentation Transcript

  1. Water management and flood protection • Connecting and protecting delta’s • Piet Dircke, Program Director, GKN Water ARCADIS Imagine the result

  2. Contents • ARCADIS Global Knowledge Network Water • Water Management and flood control in Europe • Netherlands • European Union • France • Water management and flood control in the USA & Latin America • Brazil • New Orleans • California • Florida • New York

  3. NE EUR USA GKN water knowledge exchange

  4. Sea defences:Hondsbosche & Pettemer Zeewering, Zuiderdijk hoorn-Enkhuizen)

  5. River dikes and levees:National rivers levees emergency act • “Almost-floods” of 1993/1995 • Evacuation of 250.000 people • Most of the emergency levee reinforcement works • Room for the river, Meuse River works

  6. Closure dams: Afsluitdijk Plan Waterlely: Tidal energy, flood protection & ecosystem recovery

  7. 5 year National levee safety inspection program • Levees, dikes, dunes (category A and B) 2006 (2001) • 1264 km meets the standard: 44 % (40 %) • 680 km does not meet the standard: 24 % (19 %) • 931 km ‘no judgement’ 32 % (41 %)

  8. Dutch Delta Commission II (2008):adapting to climate change

  9. Flood Control 2015: Integration of IT technology • Towards a smart flood control organization • Improve quality of decision making during emergencies • Fast & real time prediction of calculated risks

  10. Innovation in materials design:BASF elastocoast, wave & overtopping resistant

  11. Storm surge barriers • Design & construction • Risk management

  12. Estuaries & coastal restorationScheldt Estuary: Netherlands and Belgium

  13. European Union: Exchange of Experiences and Comparative Analysis for ICZMContractor: ARCADIS Sub-contractor: Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC)Jan 2009 – Dec 2011

  14. Canal Seine Nord Europe • 2005 by VNF (Voie Navegable France): • Design of lock levelling system, including water saving basins for 7 locks • Nautical design of outer harbours • Design mooring system, wave damping • Design of civil engineering works of the locks (structural and geotechnical)

  15. Brazil: Ports of Itajaí & Navegantes • Estimation of additional sedimentation as a result of the executed dredging works • Nautical study, Three dimensional hydraulic flow computations • Vertical ship motion computations & ship manoeuvring simulations • Evaluation of the future layout • Determination of the limiting conditions

  16. HPO system New Orleans

  17. GIWW Sector Gate

  18. IHNC storm surge barrier

  19. New Orleans a wake up call:USA Delta’s with opportunities for GKN Water New York City California Bay-Delta Florida Everglades Louisiana

  20. California: San Francisco Bay & Delta

  21. Florida: SFWMD CERPComprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan

  22. Closed Open New York: Verrazano BarrierConceptual design
