Abstract

The Mark-Vliet river system transports bed material and heavily polluted sus- pended sediments to the Volkerak-Zoom lake. To protect the living, working and recreation areas in this catchment, a proper integrated water management is essential. A systematic control and sanitation of the polluted sediments in the river environment will help to stop the further degradation of the water system quality. Therefore, a transboundary collaboration between Belgian and Dutch authorities is set up to study and sanitate this interregional river catchment. To improve the water and river bed quality, an effect-oriented as well as source-oriented approach is followed
