Toelichting (Engels) During dry conditions in the western Netherlands external fresh water needs to be supplied for surface water level maintenance, prevention of subsidence and peat oxidation and agriculture. The last decades already some serious dry years occurred (2003 and 2011) during which the fresh water demand was under pressure. Within the Deltaprogramma Zoetwater measures will be taken to secure a sustainable and sufficient fresh water supply. To determine the fresh water demand for the western Netherlands the LHM (Landelijk Hydrologisch Model) will be used. Based on the outcome of this model possible policy measures will be taken. This thesis validates the LHM to determine to what extent the LHM is usable and reliable to determine the fresh water demand for the western Netherlands during dry conditions. The base of this study is the setup of water balances, in which the inlet and outlet of water are the most important terms. Other parameters as precipitation deficit and seepage/infiltration are used to clarify possible deviations of the model.
