Wetland Restoration to enhance Biodiversity – Aare River, Switzerland


 

 


 
 

In Switzerland, the big pre-alpine alluvial river corridors are embedded in urban, industrial, agricultural or recreational zones. Planning and construction of flood protection and restoration measures on these rivers require consideration of various interests and is strongly influenced by restrictive constraints in time and space.
A large flood plain was exploited for widening the Aare River upstream of Berne, enhancing wetlands of national interest. Excess flood evacuation concepts guarantee the functionality of implemented protection structures under even more severe flow conditions.
