By implementing the INTERREG project ProDaM, the joint flood management for the border rivers Danube and Morava (March) will be optimised. Austrian and Slovak experts work together within the meaning of the EU Flood Directive. On the basis of common underlying data and models, concerted flood protection measures should be drawn up that cover the residual risk for the border regions.
The following individual objectives are being pursued:
01.09.2017 - 31.08.2022
Total project volume: 1,297,803 EUR
Share of viadonau: 749,303 EUR (INTERREG co-financing: 636,907 EUR)
|Development of a terrain model||2019|
|Development of a hydrodynamic 2D model||2019|
|Residual risk management plan Morava||2021|
|Planning of flood protection facilities||2021|
Preparatory works for this project have been going on since 2014. Due to delays on the part of the funding programme, the official funding approval was obtained at the end of 2017. The first activity within the project is the development of a terrain model. For that purpose, the terrain in the area of the border stretches of the Morava and the Danube will be surveyed using laser scan technology and bathymetric surveying. The laser scan survey will be conducted during the next vegetation-free period in autumn/winter 2018. Currently, respective preparations are being made.
On the basis of this terrain model hydrodynamic models can be established that simulate different discharge scenarios (e.g. HQ100). This enables the assessment of the residual risk and the planning of respective measures.
The project makes a substantial contribution to the implementation of measure
20. Optimise flood protection management across organisations and borders of the Action Programme for the Danube 2022.
