As part of the Life II project on the river Drau, different measures have been planned to stop the bed degradation in terms of both flood protection and renaturation. Through variant analysis by means of hydraulic modelling an implementation variant has been developed, consisting of river widening, side channels and flood basins. Furthermore, protection measures were planned and implemented for the adjacent municipalities St. Peter, Molzbichl and Amlach. Overall, the project improved both the river morphology and the flood protection.
The planning was conducted in cooperation with the Federal Government of Carinthia, Revital Ecoconsult and EB&P – Umweltbüro Klagenfurt, involving local population and authorities.
