Avant used to build flood defense model in Rhine Valley

A number of groups are working together to develop “Rhesi” (Rhein, Erholung und Sicherheit), a flood defense project in the Rhine Valley between Austria and Switzerland.

The Rhine is a living river, and the Alpine Rhine Valley is an important habitat for wildlife. Numerous institutions are working towards ensuring the sustainable development of the Rhine Valley as a habitat and an economic region with a future. Project Rhesi is being planned and implemented by the International Rhine Regulation (IRR).

In order to provide residents with the best flood protection, a model hydraulic engineering project for future flood defenses is being constructed in Austria’s Dornbirn Rhine region.
