The Zwarte Water is fed with (rain) water from various waterways and rivers from the surrounding area. The extremely high water in this photo is due to the rain that lasts for weeks.
Extra water is supplied by the Overijsselse Vecht near Genne *, after which the water flows into the IJsselmeer via (Hasselt, Zwartsluis) the Zwarte Meer and Ketelmeer.

The Overijsselse Vecht (Lower Saxon: De Vechte) is a rainwater river in Germany and the Netherlands.
It is 167 kilometers long, of which 60 km in the Netherlands. Its origin lies in the German Münsterland. The catchment area of the Overijsselse Vecht covers 3780 square kilometers.
The first written mention of the Overijsselse Vecht dates from around 1232 and is written in Narracio.
In recent years, the Netherlands has had to deal with too much water or too little. This has major consequences for the flood defenses (dikes) that protect us from the water.
