Reconstitution of the Environment around Can Coch. TM Llanars (Ripollès)-Restoration

The aim of the present project is to design, describe and evaluate the works necessary to carry out the restoration of the river environment in the Can Coch lock, in the municipality of Llanars (Ripollès) within a genetic reserve space of “Salmo trutta” trout and with the presence of mountain barb “Barbus meridionalis”.

The solution designed from Engisic allows the longitudinal reconnectivity of the river from the removal of the disused lock and reperfilate of the riverbed. At the same time, the strengthening of the strupe and bridge pillar is designed to cope with the decrease in the size of the riverbed due to sediment transport.
