DRYING THE ZUYDER ZEE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Stock Journal — 28 November 1919
DRYING THE ZUYDER ZEB. The problem of removing the water from the Hooded district of North Holland baa not yet been solved. About 40,000 acres are now inundated in that province. The average height to which the water must be lifted is .only three feet to four foot, but the total amount to be pumped approxi mates 7,000,000,000 cubic feet. Thin flood has revived the project of dry ing the Zuydor Zee, The cost is esti mated at £18,000,000, part of which is to cover indemnities to fishermen and for similar purposes. The cont of the dams wiil probably be lean than £10,000,000. The principal dam would bo about fifteen miles long, averaging 201t. in height. Ono of t.hu most important results accruing from the drying of the Zuyder Zoe would be that the new dams would take thn placc of the several hundred miles of dykes that now protect thd lowlands from the Zuyder Zee.
