Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The interventions carried out on the Montone river are part of a general project dating back to the '90s called "Fiumi Puliti” (Clean Rivers); the main goals of that project were the “maintenance” of river beds of the Romagna area, the reduction of flood risk and the implementation of the Montone River Natural Park, in the Municipalities of Forlì and Castrocaro. The main tool put in place to achieve these objectives was to return to the river part of the floodplains, both public domain and private, that had been separated from the river due to the construction of embankments. Since 1992, this strategy has allowed to recover, within a relatively short stretch of the river, a storage capacity of more than 2,500,000 m3. This space was returned to the natural flood dynamics lowering the alluvial plane and/or displacing the embankments to the external borders of the floodplain. In the area just upstream the confluence with the Rabbi Stream, the works included the removal of some embankments (in red in the picture) and the reconstruction of a portion of an embankment in a backward position (in green). It is foreseen to remove further embankments (in yellow), so as to ensure to both rivers a wider speace for hydromorphological dynamics.

At the confluence between the Montone River (on the left) and the Rabbi Stream (on the right), the works included the removal of some embankments (in red) and the construction of a portion of an embankment in a backward position (in green). It is also foreseen to remove further embankments (in yellow), so as to ensure to both rivers .a wider hydromorphological dynamics.
