    Discharge measurements of outflow culvert to Zuid-Willemsvaart in Maastricht. Control of theoretical discharges

    In the scope of the International Commission of the Meuse, Flanders Hydraulics Research (FHR) is contributing to a low water measuring campaign on the watersystem of river Meuse at the Flemish border with the Walloon region and the Netherlands. The goal of this study is to quantify the amount of water that flows through the culverts to the Zuid-Willemsvaart in Maastricht via the so called Voedingskanaal. The detailed amount of flow through the outflow culverts is measured with a Streampro-ADCP, operated from the bridge 150m upstream of the culvert. The results of these measurements are compared with the QH-table used by Rijkswaterstaat and with a formula dated from 1873.
