The Dutch government has decided to give large rivers more space. When the discharges of water are very high at the same time, the water level in the Hollandsch Diep and Haringvliet can rise to a dangerous level, because the river water can no longer run to waste. By temporarily store this water in the Volkerak-Zoommeer, the water levels are lowered by approximately 0.1 meters. When these barriers open, the river water flows through the Haringvliet back to the sea.
