Waternet and Siemens built an early warning system for the Ringdijk in Amsterdam. The experiences during this project led to a vision on the usage and benefits of such systems. This article is about that vision and the practical experiences during the project. The article shows the context of implementing an early warning system in Dutch practice and describes the promises and proven benefits in an age of upcoming digital technologies and climatological chances.
