Digital planning for revitalisation of the Minster river

Project overview

In the section from the confluence of the Waag river up to the Sihlsee lake, the Minster river runs predominantly in a hard-installed trapezoidal channel with continuous bed paving. The Minster river is to be ecologically upgraded via measures to widen the cross-section and provide it with a more natural design, as well as with the construction of two large widenings.
