Nature conservation is effective. Through a European approach to tackling pollution, our rivers have become cleaner. With the construction of bypasses and the transition from intensive agriculture to nature, the floodplains have become more beautiful, accessible, better at absorbing high waters, and much richer in plants and animals. One of the main drivers behind these spatial changes is the extraction of raw materials for construction.

Win-win situations

In the past, raw material extraction has always harmed the landscape. Stroming provides solutions that enable the extraction of clay, sand, gravel, and marl to contribute to nature restoration, spatial quality development, and climate adaptation. In recent years, the storage of non-applicable soil has seen significant growth, offering opportunities to restore the deep pits of old sand quarries. Stroming is closely involved in this process as well.

From vision to project

We deliver plans at a strategic level (such as 'Living Rivers' for clay extraction) and transform these plans into specific projects (e.g., for clay extraction and nature development at Loevestein). Furthermore, we advise on associated marketing and communication strategies ('Building with Nature'). We were also commissioned by Rijkswaterstaat to contribute to the development of a signalling and agenda-setting story about policy, design, and management of the Meuse: The Story of the Meuse.

More about waterlevels

The unique nature of our rivers depends largely on the dynamics of the flowing water. For an up-to-date view of water levels in the major rivers and a reflection on special events, you can visit www.waterpeilen.nl. You can sign up here for email updates.
