Less flood risk due to additional retention measures along rivers?

Could the installation of polders that capture water masses during floods reduce the risk of flooding in rivers? DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible minister.

« En Bavière il est actuellement discuté de l’aménagement de polders dans les vallées du Danube suite aux récentes pluies fortes. Des mesures analogues avaient été prises jadis au Luxembourg, par exemple dans la vallée de la Sûre à Erpeldange-Sûre, à Ingeldorf et à Diekirch, au confluent de la Sûre et de l’Alzette.

Dans ce contexte nous aimerions poser les questions parlementaires suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer sur d’éventuels potentiels de rétention supplémentaires dans la vallée de l’Alzette et dans la vallée de la Sûre ?
  • Est-il prévu de mettre en place de nouvelles zones de rétention afin de délester les vallées situées en aval en cas d’inondations fortes ?
  • Dans quelle mesure l’Administration de l‘Eau intervient-elle afin de conseiller les collèges échevinaux des communes concernées en la matière ? »

Pediatrics in Luxembourg

If the child is sick but the pediatrician is not available at the moment, parents can take their child to the children’s clinic, the Bohler Clinic or the children’s outpatient clinic in the North Hospital. In addition to long waiting times, parents from the north and east of the country in particular often have to travel long distances. DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann therefore wanted to know from the Minister of Health how many staff work in pediatrics and whether further services will be offered for the north and east.
