After the Noordhollandsch Kanaal proved inadequate after several decades, it was decided that a new canal was necessary. Digging began at Breesaap on March 8, 1865. Working conditions were considered horrible: manual labor workers lived in manmade huts and were exposed to diseases, alcohol abuse, and fighting. King William III of the Netherlands officially opened the North Sea Canal on November 1, 1876 The canal is 15 miles long (25 km) and connects to the North Sea by Ijmuiden (a port city in North Holland). It is now considered a vital part of the Western Netherlands' groundwater management system.
