Innovative approach to dam rehabilitation and the ecological improvement of riverbanks

The construction of eco-berms not only ensures efficient dam rehabilitation and raising, but also leads to a considerable ecological enhancement of the bank areas.


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 EU Water Framework Directive (EU-WFD) could be implemented effectively and economically. The project was supported by the LIFE program of the EU.
