BIOMURA - Conservation of biodiversity of the Mura river in Slovenia

Publisher: 
LIFE Programme
Abstract: 
The bed of the river Mura that flows through NE Slovenia is well preserved, especially in the middle and lower stream, where it is characterised by embankment erosion, deposition of the sand, flooding and side-channels. Deepening of the riverbed due to send accumulation behind the dams of hydropower stations in Austria, however, has resulted in a greater risk of flooding. There are no dams on Slovenian river section, but plans to alter this situation are resurfacing.
