Hydrological study of the Chilla stream in Candeleda: Ávila


Technical studies and design

This study forms part of TRAGSA's research, development and innovation (RDI) actions, intended to determine the most effective techniques for stabilising channels and their banks, establishing monitoring indicators to assess the viability of the bank stabilisation techniques. The aim of the study is to reduce erosion in one of the banks. Given that the floodable area is occupied by private estates, the framework of action was restricted to the existing limits of the channel. The work consisted of designing a series of actions affecting the geometry and length of the channels, forming a series of primary and secondary channels, post bars, vegetation bars, etc.
