Managing Reiherstieg sluice to improve oxygen conditions

Degree of synergistic effects and conflicts according the uses

Improving oxygen conditions will improve the habitats of fish and will probably lead to positive effects for fishery.
The prolongation of the ‘opening times‘ of the sluice during the ebb-phase in order to improve the oxygen supply will probably cause navigational problems inside the ‘Reiherstieg’ channel because of a potential change in current velocities. Additionally the sediment Import into the ‘Reiherstieg’ channel will increase.
