Abstract
    Unnavigable channels are classified in three categories, mainly according to the extent of their catchment area. Depending on the category, these channels are managed either by the Flemish Region, the Province, the Municipality or the Polder authorities. Management mainly consists of maintenance of the channels, public works which influence water flow and water level and the operation of structures for flow and level control. Water management takes into account the needs and wishes of the different interested parties. Proper management should lead to the protection of civilians and goods against inundations, to a sufficient availability of water for cattle, crops and drinking water production, to an ecological balance in and along the water courses and to an optimal ground water level in ecological valuables areas. In the past decades emphasis in flood control changed from maximal water drainage to maximal water retention. The article describes different channel management techniques used in the Yser basin and different actions taken by the authorities involved. The need for hydrological and hydrodynamic models to plan and support further actions is stressed.
