Design Prevention of Soil Erosion
Design Prevention, Control Measures of Soil Erosion and Sediments Accumulation in Ziglab Dam Area
To sustain Ziglab dam function, by minimizing the amount of sediments that are delivered to the dam’s reservoir, Minerva ESC planned and designed a set of hydraulic soil erosion and sediment control structures, based on integrated hodological and hydraulic studies for design floods of 50-year retained period. Our team designed green infrastructure elements, including check dams, sediment traps, erosion and scour prevention elements. This project is subcontracted to Minerva ESC by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which is a project of the GIZ’s Cash for Work Programme.
