Delta management is becoming smarter all the time. Digitisation, automation and linking water system functions make delta management more efficient and, in some cases, cheaper. The data gathered by sensors and other advanced measuring equipment form the basis of day to day management and strategic decisions. Thanks to this information, the maintenance of infrastructure facilities ranging from sewage works to waterways, can be matched to the actual need for renovation or other work. A reliable information provision system is also a vital part of disaster management. That is why there is an international demand for ICT applications which enables decisive and informed decisions.
Dozens of entrepreneurs are working on time and cost effective solutions under the auspices of VPdelta. New digital means enable citizens and businesses to participate in the management of their living environment. New and productive cross fertilisation takes place, for instance by linking water management with sustainable energy production or smart ‘more crop per drop’ irrigation methods.
