Settlement of reed at the harbor location ‘Haken’


The aim was to restore the embankments and to aid reed settlement at the location ‘Haken’, which consists of a western area of 2.3 km2 and eastern area of 3 km2 (Fig. 4). In order to establish the reed areas, existing mudflats were filled with sand up to a height of approx. + 2m above mean low water level. That means that the area is only flooded to a minimum at normal high tide. In May 2012 approx. 10 % of the area was planted with reed, the rest is expected to be colonized by the plants themselves. The costs are estimated with 100,000 €.
