Dam restoration with eco-berms avoid damages in alluvial forests
With eco-berms to new shores
Eco-berms connect rivers with alluvial forests

Innovative approaches to dam restoration and the environmental improvement of river banks

Efficient dam restoration and dam elevation in combination with a significant improvement of the ecological value of the riparian zones. This win-win situation is possible with the construction of so-called eco – berms.

This innovative approach will be tested and improved within INADAR (INnovative and ecological Approach for DAm Restoration). This way the necessary restoration of dams and the achievement of “the good ecological potential” according to the Water Framework Directive (WFD) can be effectively and efficiently implemented. The project is supported by the LIFE+ – program of the EU.
