Dynamisation of the Danube floodplain between Marxheim and Stepperg
Green light for the dynamisation of the Danube floodplain between Marxheim and Stepperg.
The aim of the project is to restore the once natural dynamics of the former landscape. Because with the regulation of the river and the construction of the hydropower plants, these processes along the Danube mostly came to an end - with serious consequences for many animal and plant species, which lost valuable habitats as a result. In order to reintroduce them in the floodplains and also to strengthen the character of the landscapes as important water retention, the next step of dynamization is now planned after the area between Ingolstadt and Neuburg.
Among other things, these provide for networking and better continuity of the existing wetlands on the Danube. It is also planned to integrate waste water and flood channels back into the system.
