Today the first summer day, also the first official day that Belgium got permission for a bike trip to the Netherlands after corona time.

Aardenburg and surroundings.

The Stierskreek between the Lapschuursche Gat and the Herendreef near Aardenburg, near the Belgian border, will be thoroughly cleaned. To improve water drainage, the water board will dredge there until mid-October. The job costs around four million euros.
Dredging the creek improves surface water runoff, water level management and water quality. After all, the dredging layer on the bottom, which does not contain any oxygen, is removed. With the help of a floating pipe, the dredge goes to adjacent agricultural plots. After a while, the dredge has dried and it can be used to raise parcels.

There is a chance that unexploded explosives from World War II lie in the Taurus Creek. They regularly emerge in the municipality of Sluis, because heavy fighting took place above West-Zeeland Flanders. Research has already been conducted into this during preparatory work. If the contractor comes across any suspicious objects, they will be removed. Small-calibre ammunition is separated from the dredged material with a sieve.

I hope you like it
