Jurgen Bals is committed to making more space for water and greenery in the city. A blue-green layout will make the city more resistant to heavy rainfall, drought and heat. Water management should also grow along with ongoing urbanisation. Moreover, a blue-green environment is more attractive and healthier. Jurgen works at the Hoogheemraadschap van Schieland en de Krimpenerwaard as area manager. Together with other (water) partners, the water board works on tomorrow’s water management.
