Hoogheemraadschap van Rijnland

The Rijnland District Water Control Board ensures clean water and dry feet. District water boards are local governmental organisations that could be compared with provinces and local councils. Rijnland is not the only district water board in the Netherlands. There are many water boards spread over the provinces. Rijnland works in two provinces: North Holland and South Holland. The Rijnland area stretches from Wassenaar up to IJmuiden and from Gouda to and including part of Amsterdam.
