The locks at Amerongen at high tide

Art code: 908 176 Copy the art code

Moetwil en van Dijk - Fotografie Profile picture Rain and meltwater from the Alps have flooded the floodplains. Trees and bushes are under water. The sight gates of weir and lock complexes are up due to the high water.

Water works in the Lower Rhine.

The two sightslides (arched steel structures) of Amerongen weir and lock complex are raised due to the high water.

The weir at Amerongen (and Maurik) has to maintain the water level between Driel and Amerongen. If little water is supplied via the Rhine, closing the weir ensures that the water in the hinterland does not drop too low. This keeps sufficient fresh water available for agriculture and keeps the waterway deep enough for shipping. When there is too much water, the weir is removed from the river so that water flows quickly towards the North Sea.

Each weir here is equipped with a so-called sight slide: a semicircular valve weighing about 200 tonnes. This slide is lifted using cables. The way the slide moves is reminiscent of the valve for the eye visor of an old knight's helmet.
