Picture 3 Removing protective dikes at the upper part of the Morava River and increasing the retention capacity of the bottomland
The increased retention effect of the bottomland will be ensured by:
- lowering the riverbed capacity by means of removing protective dikes along the riverbed, renewing meanders and bank-protecting plantation; and
- slowing down water flows in inundation areas by means of afforestation of the river valleys and lifting-up levels of roads running through the valleys
The riverbed maintenance outside urban areas will be minimal and adequate to the equivalent care of non-regulated rivers.
