The Netherlands is a country that is full of water. Through time most of the water became less deep due to sedimentation of sludge and the effects of plant remains. Sedimentation can cause problems when the water becomes to shallow for example for ships and a good watermanagement. In the last decades a lot of sediments are contaminated by industrial discharges, sewer overflows and transported contamination from de big rivers abroad.
