Realignment Wrauster Bogen

Crux of the matter

In order to promote sedimentation in the creek a reworking of the branch of the tidal creek closing one of the openings became necessary.
The monitoring showed that the high flow velocities prevented that mudflats could evolve and that fish could use the creek as resting and growing habitat. Therefore the creek was reworked leading to favorable results concerning the achievement of the development targets. A monitoring after the implementation phase turned out to be necessary in order to check whether the targeted results finally have been achieved.
