Dutch water management has an eventful history dating back over 1000 years. The enormous dams of the " Deltawerken " (the Delta Works) which were constructed in the estuary of the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt during the last half century, brought Dutch water engineering expertise world fame. As Dutch engineering firms were asked to plan and execute similar large water projects in other parts of the world, the skills and experience gained through the " Deltawerken " became a significant export product of The Netherlands. For many countries the Dutch approach became the model for water management technology.
