Hazards map and protection scheme for the Baye de Clarens (municipality of Montreux, Vaud)
Following the preparation of the hazards map for the Baye de Clarens, a protection scheme has been initiated. This includes measures to protect against flooding and revitalize the stream. A particular aim is to facilitate fish migration. A cost-benefit analysis of the protection scheme has been carried out and implementation plans have been drawn up in line with the priority assigned to the various measures.
Among other things, the scheme involves significant modifications to the geometry of the stream where it enters Lake Geneva. This measure underwent physical model testing at the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions (LCH) at EPFL.
