  • Lemmi alias Schlumpf

    Opened in 1986. Instead of a dam that completely seals off the water, a storm surge barrier was built, consisting of imposing concrete pillars and huge sliding doors in between. Mostly the gates are open to maintain the tidal movement

    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).
