ScaldWIN welcome

Welcome to the website of ScaldWIN, an Interreg IVB NWE project for a better quality of surface and groundwater bodies in the Scheldt International River Basin District (IRBD).

Philippe D'Hondt

This will be done by developing and implementing a set of cost-effective, innovative and transnational actions aimed at attaining a good status of surface and groundwater bodies. By monitoring the transnational effect of these actions, the foundation for the development of a transnational surveillance system for the Water Framework Directive (WFD) programmes of measures for the Scheldt IRBD will be laid.

With this project aim, the Scaldwin-project capitalises on the results of the Interreg IIIB NWE Scaldit-project. The pressure on the water system differs between regions. Most of the investigated transboundary or similar surface waters and groundwater layers are at risk of not achieving a good status as asked by the WFD. All competent authorities of the Scheldt IRBD will have to take extra measures.
