Rol in het project AMICE

In the catchment of the river Eifel-Rur, the water board Eifel-Rur (WVER) is responsible for:

- Operation of a reservoir system with a total volume of 300 Mio. m³,

- Flood control and water management,

- Wastewater treatment, and

- Nature conservation.

The staff of WVER has deep knowledge in river maintenance, flood protection, flood action plans, natural retention of river systems, modeling of water systems, etc. There is a strong collaboration with other partners in the catchment area like governmental authorities, agriculture, industry, research facilities, and the population. 

In detail, the contribution will be to:

- Provide hydrological data for the Rur tributary

- Provide knowledge for natural retention measures

- Provide knowledge for flow control measures

- Provide knowledge for alarm systems and crisis management

- Develop adaption strategies to mitigate climate change effects

- Carry modelling and risk analysis for the river Rur to prepare adaption of the reservoir flow control

- Elaborate a new reservoir control system to mitigate the effects of climate change in the lower Rur and Meuse basin

- Involve experts in the elaboration of the new reservoir control system

- Organise public information about the effects of climate change and adaptation strategies
