Measure Spadenlander Busch

Expected effect

The measure is a prototype for an example of river engineering measures which equally serves several purposes. Mainly more valuable habitats will be created, as well as tidal volume to compensate the ‘tidal pumping’ effect. At the same time, by identification and communication of the benefits for quite different concerns, such as water management, nature conservation, recreational use, public perception of tidal action, etc. a broad public acceptance can be achieved. The understanding of tidal action and estuarine functioning can be fostered by measures like this.
