CHD holds a workshop to analyze hydromorphological alterations

The Duero Hydrographic Confederation (CHD), an autonomous body attached to the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO), has held a day of work with physical presence on the state of surface water masses and their possible deterioration. The meeting, which took place in Benavente (Zamora), with the title ‘Hydromorphological alterations’, continues with the round of participatory sessions for the debate of the Draft of the Duero Hydrological Plan 2022-2027. The event was also attended by administrations and different agents related to water.

During the workshop, it has become clear that, in order to achieve the good ecological potential of the water bodies, a program of river restoration measures is necessary. The Draft Hydrological Plan explains that these measures on hydromorphological alterations can be divided into two groups: restoration measures (affecting 227 river-type water masses with 5,000 km of river course) and mitigation measures (affecting 153 masses designated as heavily modified or artificial).

The Draft Hydrological Plan will remain under public consultation until December 22, and during this time, anyone can make proposals, remarks and suggestions addressed to the Duero Hydrographic Confederation through the General Registry.
