The Delta Works is a major system of dams and levies in the Netherlands built in response to a major flood in 1953 that killed 2000 people.

The Delta Works are a number of structures built to keep the coastline of the Netherlands from flooding

The Oosterscheldekering (in English: Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier), between the islands Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland, is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta works series of dams, designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding.
