Take action along the Rupel

The Rupel is a short, 12 km long tributary of the Scheldt River that originates near Rumst at the confluence of the Nete and Dijle rivers. The Rupel flows through the towns of Rumst, Willebroek, Boom, Bornem, Niel and Schelle, and empties into the Scheldt right opposite from Rupelmonde on the border between Hingene and Schelle.
