Water retention measures must be accompanied by active revitalization of vegetation. A case project: Slovenská Ves
The aim of the project was to propose appropriate and effective anti-flood measures. The study area covered the cadastre of the village Slovenská Ves. The area is located on geological substrate represented by Central Carpathian flysh with unfavourable infiltration conditions. Hydrophysical soil properties (permeability and water infiltration), slope and slope exposure were the main indicators we considered in the project. Two steps were suggested in the land improvement: improvement by technical measures and improvement by land-ecological measures. As technical measures we proposed constructing water holding dikes, water holding dams, absorption ditches, wooden diverters etc. As land-ecological measures we proposed a recultivation with the aim to use and restore a special vegetation composition with high water retention capacity. For this aim we suggest to plant selected tree species, restore swampy forests and promote the spread of moss layer. Thus increasing vegetation retention capacity.
