Transcription

1 4.14 Netherlands The Netherlands is flood prone for about 60% of its surface. 95 so-called dike-rings protect the polders from being flooded from the North Sea, rivers or lakes. The protection level has a legal status, expressed in the following exceedance frequencies per year: 1/ along the central section of the North Sea coast, 1/1250 along the main rivers, 1/2000 and 1/4000 in the intermediate estuaries, lake IJssel and Wadden Sea. Flooding of these dike rings may occur as a result of the failure (or overtopping) of embankments or other defence works (sluices, storm surge barriers). Under these conditions a relatively large area may be flooded in a couple of days. The extent, progress and final flooding depth (and hence potential damage and affected inhabitants) depend on the location and process of the failure, hydraulic boundary conditions and terrain characteristics. This can be simulated by 2-D model computations. Only relatively small, unprotected areas outside these dike-rings experience the natural dynamics of rising waters due to the tide, storm-surges or river floods. Along the river Meuse isolated villages have minor embankments with a protection level of 1/250. Official flood (extent) maps in the Netherlands are available for public and official use on Internet (www.risicokaart.nl, access on provincial level). These maps show flood prone areas, as defined by more than 1 meter flooding depth with a frequency larger than 1/4000 per year. Figure 4.76 shows an example for the province of Gelderland. Many types of disasters are shown on this site, including accidents in tunnels, traffic, forest fires, earthquakes etc. To show maps related to floods (the light blue horizontal hatching), the other options can simply be turned off. In addition to these official maps many types of flood maps exist for study and disaster management purposes. As a result of these studies a new generation of flood maps will become available on the provincial Internet-sites the coming years. Anticipating the EU Flood Risk Management Directive these maps will distinguish between flood extent, depth and probability, flood progress (and rate of rise), dangerous current velocities, potential damage and affected inhabitants, flood risk (probability x adverse effects) and finally information for evacuation. Figure 4.76 Interactive flood risk map of a part of the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands 101 Atlas of Flood Maps

2 Figure 4.77 shows, for the Netherlands as a whole, the maximum depth of flooding for any location that may occur due to embankment overtopping without any reference to return period. As such it does not represent a real situation, but the worst case for every location. Figure 4.78 and Figure 4.79 show examples of depth and potential damage for a specific event: a flood caused by failure of the coastal dunes between The Hague and Rotterdam by a specified North Sea storm surge. Increasing flood depth (and damage) is visualized by increasing intensities of blue (and red). Maximum flood depth and damage not necessarily coincide. Of course damage only occurs where flooding occurs, but the amount of damage is much more determined by socio-economic value of a specific location than the expected depth of inundation. Figure 4.80 shows the travel time of the flooding process. This is important information for the preparation of evacuation plans by disaster management organizations. Figure 4.81 is an interesting example, as it shows flood depth classes related to the height of a human body (dark blue: ankle-deep, light blue: knee-deep, light rose: hip-deep, orange: head-deep, red: submerged).

7 Figure 4.81 Flood hazard map with indication of expected water depth with human terminology Another example of the information that can be obtained from series of simulations of the inundation process is shown for the region of Land of Maas en Waal in the Netherlands in Figure 4.82 (time of arrival of front of inundation with a depth of 50 cm) and the rate of rise of the water (Figure 4.83). The rate of rise has a major impact on the number of casualties, especially for inundation depths between m. The highest values of the rate of rise occur evidently close to the locations of dike failure (green dot). A combination of such a map with a map of population density and expected inundation depth can be used to derive an image of the potential number of casualties in an area vulnerable to floods. 107 Atlas of Flood Maps
