State-owned facilities: Services for Lower Saxony
Master of twelve barrages, eight flood retention basins or reservoirs, 17 raising and pumping stations, 36 sluices, 122 weirs and more than 100 bridges: The NLWKN operates important water management facilities itself and thereby provides a service for industry, and also for the general public.
Protection from storm surges and floods – that’s what the NLWKN ensures by operating and maintaining twelve barrages along the coast and on the Ems, Weser and Lower Elbe.
And the NLWKN also provides a service on inland waterways. Here the NLWKN ensures that a growing number of leisure boat enthusiasts can enjoy a trouble-free passage along the idyllic waterways, and the canals perform important functions in the drainage of the land they pass through.
