At a Glance
The Catalogue of Measures for the Danube east of Vienna covers a multitude of river engineering measures designed to stabilize the decrease in water levels, preserve the unique habitats of the Danube floodplains and create a waterway infrastructure that fulfills the requirements of safe and economic navigation. In order to achieve these goals, we continually carry out maintenance and conservation activities and implement river engineering optimisation projects. This Catalogue of Measures is the result of an integrative planning process and is based on the findings of optimised waterway and traffic management, as well as the multi-year concept and pilot project phase of the ‘Integrated River Project on the Danube East of Vienna’ (FGP). Besides involving various different interest groups, the scientifical monitoring and accompaniment of measures, plays an important role in finding and achieving socially and environmentally compatible solutions.
