A detailed study has been carried out to simulate the effect of two polders, Neuzell and Ziltendorf, on discharge in the Oder River during a flood situation. To achieve an optimum effectiveness of the storage capacity in the polder, the management of the polder inflow and outflow are of utmost importance. Several scenarios have been evaluated and an attempt has been made to define the optimum polder management strategy.
