Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


The measures conducted are based on a management plan for the River Basin District Vestlandet (period: 2010-2015) and initiated through the measure’s proposal "Heilskapeleg tiltaksplan for Strynevassdraget" prepared by Utmarksressurs AS. The management plan was drawn up to improve the water quality in the watercourse according to requirements in the Water Management Regulations (Vannfirskriften). The environmental objectives for Strynevassdraget was to improve the ecological conditions in the main river, which was considered deficient.

A project lead by NVE (Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate) in collaboration with Stryn Elveeigarlag and Stryn municipality, was started in 2016 where the highest priority measures were implemented. NVE finalized these measures in the fall of 2017. The measures were aimed at increasing the ecological value of the Strynevassdraget as a waterbody, by opening old streams and ox-bow lakes, creating shelters and habitats for fish, insects and ducks in both the riverbed and along the cultivated land by the riverbanks.

The measures include:

• Opening of old streams and ox-bow lakes

• Habitat improvement measures

• Removal of migration berries for fish
