LIFE 11 ENV/IT/000243 - Hydraulic-environmental integrated requalification of water streams belonging to the piedmont belt of Emilia-Romagna Region.

Logo LIFE-Rii european projectThe RII project concerns the piedmont belt of the Apennines near Reggio Emilia, an area where the density of infrastructures and the high level of urbanization cause a high flood risk.
The project aims at launching and testing the efficacy of some innovative strategies for land management together with experimental interventions aimed at restoring a safer path for water streams, more similar to their natural course, with the goal to improve their self-purification capacity and to improve the quality of waters and their ecological status.

The Consorzio di Bonifica dell’Emilia Centrale  (Reclamation Consortium of Central Emilia) is actively involved in the implementation of the Project, with special reference to  its design and management.
