The Haringvliet dam is an open dam which bridges the 4.5 kilometres of water between Goeree-Overflakkee and Voorne Putte. Philipsdam is a dam that belongs to the Delta Plan. It separates water of the lakes Krammer and Volkerak from the Oosterschelde. The dam of Veere or the ‘Veerse Gat’ dam was built in 1961 to protect Walcheren, North-Beveland and South-Beveland against a potential disaster. Brouwersdam Kust op Kracht = Replenishment activities to strengthen and maintain the Hondsbossche and Pettemer Sea Defence started in January 2014.
