Roelof Kruize.: Wake up and face the drought in the Netherlands

三年的干旱

大规模,在未来防水系统中的长期投资不能在荷兰过夜发生。但现在开始,现在开始,阿姆斯特丹水实用工具,水网首席执行官的Roelof Kruize写道。

十年前很少有人在荷兰lieved that we should have to deal with a situation of drought. And yet, in the last three summers (2018-2020) we have seen drought right up there on our national agenda. Daily drinking water consumption is sometimes 150 per cent of the normal consumption.

Scientists will explain that global warming is behind drought in the Eastern Netherlands, with astudyby meteorological institute KNMI and Utrecht University supporting this view.

研究和气候模型表明,未来,冬季将在荷兰的冬天越来越多的风,夏天将更热,更干燥。

据信干旱将有两个主要原因:

  • 将蒸发增加作为上升温度的直接结果

  • 由于北海上方的高压区域增加,夏天的连续时期没有下雨。

Water restrictions are not enough

So how do we address the issue? Water restrictions have been discussed for the first time in our history. Customers have understood the message to be careful with water consumption.

他们肯定理解“气候变化”。他们一直在避免使用饮用水来洗车,浇水花园或填充游泳池。

“个人,我不相信限制是解决方案,我们也不能只是责备当前难度的气候变化。”

就个人而言,我不相信限制是解决方案,我们也不能简单地责备当前难度的气候变化。荷兰的水资源稀缺与我们的水管理系统有关。

多年来,我们现在有哲学将水直接泵入海上,以避免在整个土地上淹没。在高降雨期间,我们未能将这种水存放在遵循的干燥时期。

I really believe that we have to change this system. Of course, the changes would mean the necessity of a delta plan, because this has a big influence on our water infrastructure in the Netherlands.

当然,这将意味着反对siderable investment, something that is necessary to ensure a robust and future-proof water system in the Netherlands in the time to come.

Learning from other countries

我们拥有饮用水供应,废水收集和处理以及水管理的全部成本回收系统。我们的居民(我们的客户)每年支付每年的费用和税率约为我们平均收入的2%。

I really believe that we need to work to create awareness that we have to change our water infrastructure and to invest for the future. We can learn from other countries which have a longer tradition of drought management. Maybe we can even consider the use of brackish water for drinking water production in the western part of our country.

"We can learn from other countries which have a longer tradition of drought management."

This is such a big problem we face now. The droughts that very few saw coming a decade ago, mean restrictions and rules will not be enough.

大规模,未来防水系统的长期投资不能过夜。但它需要发生。现在,投资需要开始(...快速看看我们的手表)。
