Innovative approach to dam rehabilitation and the ecological improvement of riverbanks
Efficient dam rehabilitation and dam raising in combination with a considerable ecological upgrading of the riverbanks. This win-win situation was achieved through the construction of so-called eco-berms.
This innovative approach was tested and further developed within the INADAR project. Thus, the necessary maintenance of the dams and the achievement of the "good ecological potential" in terms of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) could be implemented effectively and economically. The project was supported by the LIFE program of the EU.
