We are Wetterskip Fryslân. We have been looking forward for 750 years, keeping our feet dry and our dykes strong. We optimise water levels in ditches and lakes, monitor water quality and purify wastewater. In this way, we keep the areas of Fryslân and Groninger Westerkwartier safe and liveable – now and in the future. And we need to keep doing this.

The climate is changing, sea levels are rising, and we are increasingly facing extreme downpours on the one hand and droughts on the other. These changes require an innovative approach. Together with residents, companies and organisations, we think of smart, sustainable solutions – always looking for the answer to that one question: What will we be doing with water tomorrow?
