Realignment Wrauster Bogen

Effectiveness according to development targets of measure

Definition of development targets:
  • Development of 2.2 ha of new valuable marsh habitat created by dyke realignment.
  • Creation of shallow water area within the creek, which should function as a resting and growing habitat for special protected fish species.
  • Development of alluvial forest on the island.
Achievement of development targets
  • The new habitat developed in a favorable way. After the adjustment of the tidal creek (see above) the flow velocities in the river channel decreased and mudflats could evolve and thus provide food for the resting fish species.
