The reconstruction of the Tongelreepvalley (Province Noord Brabant in The Netherlands) is the first of a collection of four examples for nature-oriented flood damage prevention in the nofdp project. On 22nd of September 2005, the Chairman of the Water Board de Dommel, Peter Glas, and the nofdp Scientific Co-ordinator, Christoph Hbner, jointly launched the first phase of the total reconstruction.

nofdp is an investment project which focuses on giving ecological systems of water bodies and catchments areas, a greater role to play in flood damage prevention. Under the term nature-oriented flood damage prevention the nofdp project ( summarises measures to reduce flood damage

- which use or restore natural elements,
- which include or generate elements and/or functionalities that mitigate negative anthropogenic effects on nature,
- which develop or restore a (more) natural environment or
- which provide and ensure a sustainable and nature-friendly land use of floodplains.

The project partnership, led by the Hessian Ministry of Environment, Rural Development and Consumer Protection, brings together seven partners from Germany and the Netherlands including four waterboards, the German Federal Institute of Hydrology and a group of external experts.
