Project Overview

Boer Bier Water is a collaboration examining how water can be handled in the most efficient way. Bavaria and the farmers in the Laarbeek area use a lot of this water. In order to deal well with this, for example, the residual water from Bavaria is redistributed among farmers. Dams are also placed and additional ditches are dug to prevent dehydration of the ground.
