Flood prevention measure at Moosplattenbach

In cooperation with the Austrian Forest Engineering Service in Torrent and Avalanche Control, a range of options for constructing flood protection measures for an HQ150 are being developed for the Moosplattenbach river in the town of Teufenbach.

In addition to hydrological considerations, sedimentation is also taken into account. Sediment retention was to be achieved with the construction of a sort lock with pre-dam, and the linear configuration of the Moosplattenbach in the form of a trapezoidal channel with streambed protection through rustic stone sills on larch wood gratings or through concrete bed sills.
