Reinforcement of Rhône levees (municipality of Aigle, Vaud)
Having drawn up the Rhône plain hazards map for the Canton of Vaud and conducted a geotechnical analysis of the levees along the River Rhône, Stucky has initiated a project to reinforce these levees.
The most urgent measures have been implemented. These comprise the installation of shoulders, drains at the foot of the levees and a slurry wall. Furthermore, the levees are given an annual erosion assessment, which also involves examining them for the activities of burrowing animals, particularly beavers. To limit the impact of these activities, specific protective measures have also been taken to restrict burrow size.
