Floodbreaking hedgerows in Southern France

General
National Id: 
France_01
Site name: 
Lèze River Basin
Summary: 
The Lèze is a river located in the South of France, near the Pyrenees, on the French departments Ariège and Haute-Garonne. The case study concerns the implementation of floodbreaking hedges, which are located across the flood plain of the Lèze and are regularly spaced (every 300 to 500 metres). Partially obstructing the flow, such hedges can slow down running water and dissipate its energy. The project has been financed by the SMIVAL (20%), French State, local authorities, ERDF and the Water Agency (80% for all).
