Level-controlled pressure infiltration

Goal

As part of the project, trial fields have been set up with pressure infiltration in the Alblasserwaard Vijfheerenlanden. During dry periods, the underwater drains infiltrate the ditch water under pressure into the middle of the plots, which prevents the peat soil from drying out and settling. In wet periods, the plot is more easily dewatered. Based on the knowledge developed, entrepreneurs and administrators decide whether they want to implement the technique on a larger scale.
