Water Board NoordenveldEdit

Noordenveld is also the name of a former Water Board, which had its office in Roden. Water Board Noordenveld arose from the Water Boards of Leutingewolde (1866-1967), De Zuidermaden (1914-1967), De Weehorst (1917-1967), De Peizer en Eeldermaden (1928-1984) and Matsloot-Roderwolde (1933-1984).[6]

In 1995, Water Board Noordenveld was merged into Water Board Noorderzijlvest, based in Onderdendam.[7]
