Dutch Homeowners Move to Make Room for the River

  • Aired: 10/29/2013
  • 02:16
  • Rating: NR
The Dutch have dealt with flooding for centuries by heightening dykes -- and that may not have been wise. Hans Brouwer, senior branch manager with the "Room for the River" project says it's time to the give land back to the river. This means farmers and homeowners have been asked to give up their land to make room for the rivers' natural floodplains, which has not been easy.
