Samenvatting:
Eindwerk industrieel ingenieur milieukunde, The Flemish region is densely populated, strongly industrialized and is characterized by intensive agricultural activities. Flanders also struggles with historical pollution of water sediments and groundwater. These circumstances contribute to the long way to go to for a good water quality in Flanders (Janda, 1999). A huge step forward in environmental legislation was the implementation of the concept of integrated water management, in following of the European Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EG). Integrated water management looks at water as a system and tries to synchronise the management of water quantity, water quality and life in the water environment. Water quality models have proven to be a reliable tool for decision making and scenario analysis. It can be an aid for implementing specific measures towards the different target groups in order to enhance the water quality in surface waters. In this study a SWAT (Soil and Water Assessment Tool) (Neitsch et al, 2005) model is build for the Grote Nete, a subbasin of the Nete basin situated in the Scheldt catchment area.
