River Vomano Basin, Italy
Mitigation of the hydrogeological risk
PERIOD: 2013 - on-going
CLIENT: PROVINCE OF TERAMO
The objective of the project for the mitigation of the hydrogeological risk in the river Vomano basin is to deal with hydraulic and environmental risk situations through the realisation of works aimed at increasing the safety limit and preserving the environmental characteristics of the river, stopping and combatting the erosion phenomena that have occurred along stretches of the water course involved in the intervention. The area of interest is that between the bridge over state road 16 'Adriatica' up to the bridge over provincial road 23b in the locality of Castelnuovo Vomano in the town of Castellato. The project will involve the hydraulic safeguarding of the entire area in respect of the limitations imposed by the anthropic structures present and the surrounding environment. The interventions are therefore aimed at avoiding phenomena of fl ooding and/or overfl owing in areas external to the river banks and ensuring the transit of the maximum water flow (return time 200 years), under safe conditions and in respect of the minimum clearances to be maintained in the proximity of the bridges and the crowning of the river banks.
