The Hoge Vucht polder is a relatively low-lying area. Very old groundwater is coming at the surface here because of the high water pressure, so-called seepage. In the old days, pump Moerlaken pumped this water to the river Mark. With the realization of Waterakkers the seepage can be used to feed the water pond. Via the new Hoge Vucht pump the surplus water is being discharged via Waterakkers to the polder to stimulate natural development.
