From Namur the Meuse winds eastward skirting the Ardennes, passes Liège, and turns north, where it forms part of the Belgian–Dutch border before swinging westward through SE Netherlands (where it is called the Maas).
The Oude Maas (Old Meuse), which is a branch of the Waal, and the Nieuwe Maas (New Meuse), which is a continuation of the Lek River, actually belong to the Rhine estuary.
The Meuse is linked with the Belgian port of Antwerp by the Albert Canal and with Rotterdam and other Dutch ports by the intricate system of Dutch waterways; thus it is one of the chief thoroughfares of Europe.

 First World War.com - Battles - The Battle of Verdun, 1916
He planned to assault the town from both side of the surrounding Meuse River, a plan vetoed by Falkenhayn, who, cautious by nature, feared heavy losses, ordered the attack to be confined to the east bank of the river.
He summarily dismissed General Langle de Cary, who was responsible for the defence of Verdun, for deciding to evacuate Woevre plain and the east bank of the Meuse River.
Joffre, however, supported Nivelle in dismissing the suggestion, a decision that was fortunately vindicated by a sudden drain upon German resources as a result of a Russian offensive on the Eastern Front, which meant that fifteen German divisions had to be withdrawn from Verdun to aid in the defence on the east.

From the purpose of the Treaty and the intention of its framers, he draws the conclusion that the quantity of water permitted to be taken from the Meuse depended on a minimum depth of water in the river below Maestricht.
The fundamental object of the Treaty is to allow the withdrawal from the Meuse of a certain quantity of water, fixed with reference to the level of the river.
Another object is to establish a regime for the Meuse capable of maintaining and improving its navigability in spite of the quantity of water which would be extracted from the river.

 WL :: flood risk studies for Meuse River, Belgium
Apart from problems concerning the internal drainage of the area, the subsidence is so large that during high flood stages in the river Meuse the area is under severe risk of flooding if one of the surrounding dikes would break.
Using the flood waves of the 1993 and 1995 in the River Meuse as hydraulic boundary conditions, flooding scenarios were simulated assuming dike breaches at various locations and different widths.
Improvement of dikes at specific locations or deepening the winterbed of the River Meuse appeared to be the most promising measures.

 Climatological changes in storm surges and river discharges
The accuracy of the model results is mainly impeded by the uncertainty in the estimates of temperature changes, sea level ris and increase of peak discharges of the rivers Rhine and Meuse, and of the characteristics of the storm surges: the intensity, duration and frequency of occurrence of storm wind fields.
The area is bounded on the eastern side by the rivers Lek, Waal (both downstream branches of the Rhine) and the Meuse (in Dutch: Maas) and on the western side by the North Sea (see figure 1).
The rivers Rhine and Meuse are regulated by sluices far upstream, while in the lower part of the estuary, where three contributing rivers have split into a rather complicated network of branches with interconnecting channels (see figure 1), the Haringvliet sluice gates are used as a way of regulating the water flow.
