River engineering

River engineering

Thanks to its strong expertise in sedimentology, river morphology, mud flows and hydro-sedimentary modelling, Artelia has an in-depth understanding of rivers, enabling it to design operational schemes that do not interfere with natural flow conditions and to assess and restore existing structures.

By carefully combining conventional techniques (embankments, rockfill protection, sills and river training works) and more innovative ones (restoration of channel migration zones to allow greater bed mobility), Artelia strives to reconcile the need for flood and erosion protection, navigation and tourist activities with respect for the ecological functions of aquatic environments.
