Beautiful, great to drive storm surge weir with an impressive view of the sea.
"The waters of the North Sea flooding in the tide through the Oosterschelde storm surge, which is considered a technical wonder of the modern world and can close off the entire Oosterschelde from the sea in an emergency. The tide reaches about three meters. "Source Wikipedia

The Oosterschelde was initially as well as other areas of the delta area separated by a closing dike of the North Sea. This would have cut off the Oosterschelde from the tides. Over time, freshwater would have displaced the saltwater, which would have had a massive impact on the entire flora and fauna. In particular, negative effects on mussel and oyster farming would have been expected at Yerseke (Wikipedia).
