Demer River Restoration

Infraestructura y entorno

The historic course of the Demer River through Diest town centre has been restored. The river was almost completely filled in in the 1960s, with the water being diverted into a canal around the old town walls. This project has provided a new dimension to the city with a completely different look of its public areas. Using a harmonised design for all the public spaces along the Demer has given a new, unified structure to the town’s appearance.
