  • Description

    Flevo Polder Area, Zuyder Zee, Holland (Netherlands).

    Aerial shot flying over a pumping station set in the middle of a flooded area of Flevoland which is to be reclaimed. This area is called the Polder of Flevoland in the former Zuyder Sea. Various shots inside the pumping station showing large pumps in action. These pumps have run non stop for over 200 days ridding the area to be reclaimed of over seven million gallons of water. Various shots flying over the reclamation area showing that already high spots of land are appearing in the vast expanse of water. Various shots at a Dutch landing strip of reed seed being loaded into light aircraft. Air to air shots of the light aircraft dropping the seed over the reclaimed land. The reeds aid in cleaning soil and also in further drainage of the land which is hoped to be cultivated fully by 1980.
