Gemaal Oude en Nieuwe Broekpolder

The Oude en Nieuwe Broekpolder pumping station was built in 1881 to drain the polder area. The water at the pumping station is 2 meters below NAP and is raised 1.6 meters to the level of the Kromme Zweth. In the beginning the pumping station was powered by a steam engine, in 1920 it was switched to a diesel engine and it is now electrically powered.
