Abstract

Last year in the Netherlands 15 locations were allocated along the Rhine branches where – under strong restrictions - it was allowed to build in floodplains. Building in floodplains may lead to a water level rise during floods and moreover, the river bed morphology may be disturbed (erosion/sedimentation). A potential building location on a floodplain of the river IJssel near Deventer (Wilpsche Klei) is used as a fictitious case to investigate these processes.
