Resumee Preliminary Study Enns Salzburg
A conversation with Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Prodinger, Federal State Salzburg
What was the focus of the preliminary study?
In the past numerous studies and projects on the rivers Enns and Taurach in Salzburg were conducted and implemented. The challenge in the preliminary study was to compile and review the existing documents on flood protection and river ecology that already exist for the project area. This task worked out well. With this basis, we were able to carry out a targeted tendering procedure for the implementation of the GE-RM planning process.
What are the important findings of the preliminary study? What does this mean for the GE-RM?
The topic of flood risk management is already well covered. This topic no longer needs to be dealt with in its entirety in the GE-RM planning process. The GE-RM will therefore focus on ecological aspects.
Outlook and Timeplan
Compared to the other GE-RMs in the IRIS project, the GE-RM Enns-Taurach is a “small” GE-RM. The tendering procedure has already started in autumn 2019 and the planning process is well advanced. The pilot measure is also already foreseeable – so the planned time schedule will be easily respected.
