Creek restoration in Männedorf

We developed the "Action plan for the implementation of measures addressing natural hazards" for the municipality of Männedorf. This included restoring the continuity of the village creek, with incrementally removing a dam while monitoring the effects. We assisted the municipality with hydraulic engineering and design measures to create a long-term stable and near-natural stretch of water.
