Vorder- und Hinterwerder

Effectiveness according to development targets of measure

-Step 1: Definition of development targets
  • Development of natural floodplain habitats with tidal waters, specific shore vegetation, reed beds and willow groves
  • Reestablishment of natural gradients from aquatic to terrestrial habitats. The deeper areas of the shallow water zone are designed to improve the situation for fish and to serve as sediment traps to slow down the expected siltation.
  • Protection and enhancement of higher located poor grassland areas (grazing land with extensive use)
-Step 2: Degree of target achievement
The degree of target achievement for the compensation measure ‘Tidal habitat Vorder- und Hinterwerder’ can be considered as high. The development target according to the grassland areas was reached satisfactorily. The area left to natural succession developed faster than expected. The aims for fish were reached one year after measure implementation already.
