Long Description:
The Markgraven is a stream of about seven kilometers between the municipalities of Almelo and Tubbergen. In the past, this stream of a meandering stream in a tight channel changed. Unfortunately, this new form was found to yield various problems.

In 2004, a design proposal in broad terms that the above problems are solved. The proposal is short in the stream of the Markgraven, the entire length, wildlife strips of ten meters will on both sides of the stream. These are called streamed strips. The strips can control flooding during heavy rainfall. In this way, prevent unwanted floods in other places. In addition, the water level will also be adjusted. The adjustment we arranged with a weir that the water level in summer was high and low in winter. That has been changed to a fixed water level. The water level is adjusted in such a way that agriculture in the region has optimal benefit. In addition, fish ladders positioned to optimize the migration route for fish.
