Leeghwater pumping station - Buitenkaag
In the 19th century there were three steam pumping stations that pumped the Haarlemmermeer dry, Gemaal Leeghwater is one of them. This pumping station was also the first pumping station, since it started in 1848
History, present and future are well combined in this pumping station. The historic pumping station has been completely modernized not so long ago and, at present and in the future, plays a vital role in the water management of the Haarlemmermeerpolder.
