  Nieuwe Maas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Nieuwe Maas ("New Meuse") is a stretch of river in the Netherlands, taking water from the Rhine and the Meuse.
Here, the Nieuwe Maas originally forked into two branches, with river Het Scheur flowing westward and the Nieuwe Maas continuing southwest to the town of Den Briel, where the Scheur and Nieuwe Maas branches flowed together again to form the Brielse Maas estuary.
The last stretch of Nieuwe Maas was dammed off, however, at the Botlek strait, and all of its water is now discharged through Het Scheur.

The Botlek originally was the name of a stretch of the Nieuwe Maas river, part of the Rhine-Meuse delta near the Dutch city of Vlaardingen in the province of Zuid-Holland.
The strait itself was merely the continuation of the Nieuwe Maas, and the stretch of the river south of Rozenburg continued to be called Nieuwe Maas until the confluence with het Scheur formed the Brielse Maas estuary.
Major waterway regulation works were carried out in the Netherlands in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to improve water management and stop the delta from silting up; the Botlek was dammed off at its southern end (connecting Rozenburg and Welplaat) and remodelled into one of the largest of the Rotterdam seaports (see also Europoort).
