Environmental Restoration of Olivar-El Zaudin Metropolitan Park in Tomares.21 April 2015- General cleaning of the area
removal of rubble and rubbish: Since the park area was not an enclosed one
there had been continuous dumping of rubble and rubbish
and there was general lack of cleanliness and neglect. These discharges were removed
both from the stream and the surrounding areas. - Conditioning of the banks of the stream and lagoons. The necessary works were carried out for the embitterment and consolidation of the banks of both the stream and the 4 existing lagoons. - Elimination of allochthonous plant species
paying special attention to the stream and lagoon areas
with had invaded by the bulrush and other plants
that were in many cases dry. A cleaning process was carried out
preserving those specimens in good condition. Plantation of autochthonous species. The park was reforested with local plant species
and equipped with an irrigation network. Shrub species were also provided as a means to help protect the area from the banks of the stream and the lagoons from the public
safeguarding the habitat of the species present.

Environmental Restoration of the Lower Section of the Bembézar River and its River Environment (Phase 1).8 January 2019Actions to improve the natural environment: Cleaning of the riverbed and the riverbank; Removal of dead vegetation and cleaning of rubbish.Actions to improve the natural environment: Restoration of the autochthonous riverside vegetation in the sections in which the reedbed is present. It is responsible for the degradation of the autochthonous vegetation
in an area which should be a riverside forest with species closer to the ecological climax; Removal of ailanthus and other invasive exotic species.

Environmental Restoration of the Riopudio Stream in Sevilla1 August 2008- Preliminary works Consisted of the elimination of shrub vegetation along the stream area
speacilly the abundant of two currently invasive plants (Arundo donax and Ricinus communis) as well as tall ruderal scrubs. This action allowed the execution of the new planned stream profiles
and also the avoidance
as far as possible
of subsequent invasion of these very colonising species. - Land movement The design of the conditioning of the riverbed has been adapted to the natural conformation of the stream with slopes to avoid erosion and facilitate its subsequent revegetation. - Defense of the riverbanks In the sections of the riverbed in which fluvial erosion has occurred due to its instability due mainly to the characteristics of the materials of the slope
its geometry and the extraordinary conditions of circulation of the flow in periods of high rainfall
the breakwater structures foreseen in the project have been placed in order to guarantee the structural stability and the collapses to the riverbed. In other sections where significant tangential stresses occur due to existing steep longitudinal slopes
a total of ten dams have been constructed to help stabilise the river bed and thus reduce erosion. The first two upstream are made of concrete breakwater
as they are smaller
while the remaining eight are made of mass concrete and are spread over sections where the slope of the stream is steeper. - Landscaping and cleaning of the area Prior to the environmental restoration of the land
rubble removal has been carried out in expropriated areas due to the existence of abandoned houses and uncontrolled dumping. Subsequently
the existing woodland was cleaned and felled
the olive grove plots remaining in the expropriated areas were pruned and regrinded
all the created waste was chipped and the pre-existing shrub vegetation was rubbed mechanically. - Environmental restoration (Plantations and maintenance) When it comes to restoring the vegetation cover of the Riopudio stream
previous action has been taken on the existing one
eliminating invasive species and weeds by clearing them
while preserving and improving the aerial structure of those specimens and copses that are within the areas to be revegetated and which
due to their ecological value
shall be to maintained. In order to ensure the rooting of the introduced plantations
numerous maintenance irrigations were carried out between April and the end of November due to the high average temperatures that occurred during the spring
summer and autumn of 2015
as well as the necessary weeding and clearing on the invasive plants that competed with the implanted vegetation. These clearings were also important in thr presention of forest fires. Other complementary measures have been the construction of Canadian crossings to prevent the entry of livestock and the enclosure with livestock mesh that protects the planted area and physically delimits it.

Updated project for the “Environmental Restoration and Urban and Landscape Planning of Cabra River’s High Section (Cordoba)19 December 2018Actions will be carried out to improve the longitudinal and transverse continuity of the river
extending the width of the banks and creating a fluvial corridor. In addition
the quality and aesthetics of the landscape will be improved (by cleaning and removal of waste). The natural environment will also be restaured and improved (with silvicultural treatments of riverside vegetation and plantations) and hydrological recovery actions will be carried out
such as stabilization of slopes and recovery of margins witch present erosion problems. In this regard
the project proposes planting of autochthonous vegetation (elms
poplars
ashes
willows
tarajes
figs ...) along the most degraded banks.
