Background

The EU-funded project ISOBEL (Integrated SOlutions for BEd Load management) is testing a new approach for the renaturation of free-flowing stretches below dams. The study area is located in a 25-kilometer section of the Iller River, between Altusried and Lautrach.

Here, suitable solutions for targeted bedload management are being developed, tested and optimized in order to create suitable water structures and new habitats for fish and small organisms. The solutions developed in the project should be transferable throughout Europe.
