Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


This LIFE Project is still in progress. In the River Danube the restoration work of re-establishment of lateral flowing waters was completed by digging out more than 4 km. Together with the measures of the LIFE project Wachau there are now in total about 10 km lateral flowing waters restored- most of all historic situations. In addition the mouth of River Pielach was shaped as a delta and the possibility of fish migration into an old shallow waterbody near the town of Melk was improved by a fish pass. At River Ybbs restoration work is done at 3 locations near the town of Amstetten by widening the river bed with the aim to create typical gravel bars, gravel island and riparian zones.
