When can you go canoeing on the Auke Vleerstraat?

When can you go canoeing on the Auke Vleerstraat?

That was the title of the bachelor assignment of three Mathematics students, namely, Ruben French, Loes Knoben and Martin Otten. Supervised by Dr. Anne Remke, from DACS, the students developed a mathematical simulation model to predict whether water treatment plants are not capacble of handling large amounts of water from preciptation and, hence, raising the risks of floodings. Interestingly, their presentation took place one day after the flooding problems in Enschede and other cities in the Netherlands due to the heavy rainfall on Thursday, 20 June 2013.
