Water retention and land use change planning of the Ancient Dráva Programme

2015. június 17., szerda 13:10


Procurement procedure was carried out in accordance with Contractual Conditions of FIDIC Yellow Book for the design and construction work of the project “Water retention and land use change planning within the framework of the Ancient Dráva Programme” (Programme ID: KEHOP-1.3.0-15-2016-00014). The winning bid was submitted by AQUAPROFIT Engineering, Consulting and Investment Ltd.

The Project’s planning works are in progress. The design area concerns the south and south-west part of County Baranya and the south-east area of County Somogy; which includes four districts: Barcs, Sellye, Siklós and Szigetvár, which comprises the administrative area of ??45 settlements aggregately 572.14 km2, or 57 214 hectares. The settlements are mentioned by name in Government Decree No. 149/2016. (VI.13.).

The development objective of the Ancient Dráva Programme is to support the establishment of all necessary conditions for sustainable water management in the project area. The planned river system will allow 5 m3/s water supply from River Dráva, besides the proportional water distribution in the area, and water retention and preservation. This offers possibilities to meet the ecological needs of wetland habitats and to create sustainable land management in practice, which is based on water retention.

Since the objectives of the project are to change the water balance of a considerably large area, it was necessary to model the functioning of the planned system in advance, in order to predict the expected changes in the area. During the modelling the entire water distribution system was analysed in different operating states, especially regarding the channels filled with the planned excess water. The effects of natural and artificial water supply on surface water flow and its effect on under-surface water flow was investigated and the opportunities of water distribution within the whole system. Then the experts have studied their combined impact and interaction with the conjugation of the above mentioned elements.

The design and dimensioning of the system of distribution of the water discharge was summarized by the contractor in a masterplan document, which was approved by the customer in August 2018.

The implementation plans of revitalization of Adhini side-branch and Piskó side-branch have been completed, and construction works have begun on the above mentioned side-branches.
At the project area several outreach events will be organized by the South-Transdanubian Water Management Directorate in October, both for the citizens, business organizations and professional organizations, where the technical content of the project will be presented to the public.
