Technical-biological bank protection at the test-stretch on the river Rhine– opportunities and challenges with regard to bank protection and ecology

Since 2011 various technical-biological bank protection measures have been tested in a field test at the river Rhine near Worms (Germany) in the area of responsibility of the Waterways and Shipping Office Mannheim (WSA Mannheim) within the joint research project of the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW) and the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG). After five years of extensive monitoring results for the efficiency of the measures with regard to bank protection and ecology are available. In the contributions of the colloquium boundary conditions, experiences with installation and operation as well as stability, limits of application and an ecological evaluation of the various measures will be presented. In addition recommendations for further applications at inland waterways will be given. On the second day a guided tour to the test-stretch will be offered. The colloquium is organized by BAW, BfG and WSA Mannheim.
