Removal of drainage ditches on wet meadow on Coat Carriou > Success factor(s) #2680


The main interest of the restoration work was to eliminate the short-circuit effect of the ditches. After the works, all the water from the hillside flows through the wetland and benefits from its purifying effect. The main opportunity was the call for projects sent by the network, which convinced project leaders who were still hesitant to launch an action and carry out their project successfully. Financial leverage is important, as the work is part of territorial contracts and is financed by the Water Agency. As monitoring and evaluation are carried out by RERZH, the project leader can benefit from monitoring without additional cost to the structure. The technical support and assistance on regulatory dossiers provided by RERZH was also an important lever.
