Toelichting (Engels) During extreme rainfall conditions, the Greenport Boskoop is highly vulnerable to water nuisance. Water nuisance was observed previously inside water level areas in the Gouwepolder, situated in the east of Greenport Boskoop. This thesis specifically focuses on water nuisance that is caused by interacting water level areas in the Gouwepolder. In the past, several parcels located inside lower water level areas in the Gouwepolder experienced water nuisance orginating from the surface water system in the higher compartiment. Damage to horticultural production was limited due to the removal of floodwater within 48 hours. Future climate change is expected to increase the occurrence of extreme rainfall conditions and the probability of water nuisance, while horticultural production may irreversibly be damaged when the soil is fully saturated for more than two days.
