Toelichting (Engels) An approach to countering pollution of the Rhine has resulted in the welloiled international river management of the entire Rhine River. Following the extremely high waters of 1995, this international approach was applied to water safety as well. Rhine states have already invested 12.5 billion Euros in dike reinforcement, the construction of retention areas, warning systems and the composition of risk charts. The German state Rheinland-Pfalz, responsible for the left bank of the Upper Rhine, has provided an important contribution to water safety by constructing ten large retention areas along the old river meanders. The International Rhine Commission expects far greater retention capacity to be required by 2020 in order to continue to guarantee water safety along the Rhine.
