Table 3: Effect of the measure concerning the main conservation objectives in the operational area 6.

Operational area (zone) Natura 2000 conservation objectives Effect of Measure on conservation objectives Description
    Positive No effect Negative  
6 Conservation of the near-natural hydro morphological habitat conditions of the habitat type Estuaries (11309), if possible conservation and improvement of estuary typical dynamics +      
6 Conservation and development of broad mudflats and near-natural land-water intersection with tidal-creeks, tidal reeds and hydrophilous tall herb fringe communities (6430), reestablishment of tidal influence in the “Sommerpolder Belum”   +    
6 Conservation, reestablishment and development of meadows with vegetation typical for the Elbe region, like lowland hay meadows (6510) with respect to their avifaunistical function.   +    
6 Conservation of the function as growth habitat for the twaite shad.   +    
6 Stabilizing of the population of gull-billed tern and common tern.   +    
6 Conservation, partly reestablishment and development of the brooding function esp. for the species on extensive used meadows, large-scale reeds and grassland-ditch complexes of the marshes and the associated habitats.   +    

The measure ‘Underwater relocation area Medemrinne Ost’ has neither positive nor negative effect on species and habitats that were protected via the BHD. Nevertheless, it will fulfill one of the targets that are mentioned in the integrated management plan for the zone 6. The measure has the aim to improve the estuary typical dynamics in this area.
