Restoration of raised bog Aklais in Latvia

General
National Id: 
Latvia_03
Site name: 
Located in L127 and L161 (water bodies codes according to the Lielupe river basin management plan). Located in the nature reserve, Natura 2000 (in Daudzese parish, Jaunjelgava County).
Summary: 
The main goal of the implemented NWRM was to restore natural hydrological regime in drained raised bog Aklais located in nature reserve area being also the Natura 2000 site in Latvia. Building of the dam was chosen as most appropriate method. Due to natural conditions, there was no possibility to use technique thus dams were built by hand. Unfortunately the part of the dams is partly washed out by waters now and in a result raised bog is not restored as expected. The main lesson for future is to use adequate technique and materials to ensure durability of the dams.
