The Haringvliet Dam
This dam was built between 1955 and 1971 by creating an artificial island in the middle of the estuary. The final phase of the project was completed with the aid of a cable car. 5km long, the dam incorporates 17 sluices in the middle which help to maintain the balance between fresh and salt water. A navigation lock has been created to the south, near the small harbour. The Expo Haringvliet exhibition provides information on the construction and operation of the sluices.
