The Twents Waternet (‘Twente Water Network’) is a partnership between 14 municipalities and a regional water authority aimed at tackling water and climate issues. The network consists of more than 600 groundwater measuring points, many of which are equipped with telemetry.
The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) is using various methods to measure evaporation at the National Atmosphere Observatory in the Utrecht village of Cabauw. The KNMI has recently started using Eijkelkamp’s Smart Lysimeter as a new and independent way of measuring evaporation.
The Twente canals (Twentekanalen) play an essential role in logistics for shipping from and to the ports of Almelo, Hengelo, and Enschede. As transport by water is set to increase in the coming years in this region, the Twente canals need to be widened. Groundwater levels are monitored carefully before, during, and after the works in the project area. Key officials Xander Tekelenburg and Wilco Klutman explain why.
The Grift is a stream that has its source just outside Apeldoorn. The Grift picks up water from several branches and channels it through the landscape.

As Senior Advisor at Antea, Bjorn Vink was closely involved in this infrastructure project in the south of the Netherlands, which used Eijkelkamp Soil & Water equipment.
Henk van Tongeren Water & Techniek is increasingly using sensors, modems, and the Eijkelkamp Soil & Water WebPortal for projects. General Manager Guido van Tongeren explains why.
Good surface and groundwater quality means sustainable development of plants, animals, and reliable drinking water. To guarantee this quality, a policy has been formulated in the Water Framework Directive which must be observed by all EU Member States.
Willy de Groot and Paul Gerritsen are both involved in an extensive compaction research project, in which the Eijkelkamp Penetrologger plays a prominent role.
Commissioned by the municipality of Harlingen, Antea Group measured the salinity of the Harlingen canals in Friesland. A motorboat with an advanced mobile multiparameter probe was used to travel the length of the canals and conduct the measurements.
