Issue:

This section of the river has residences along its banks. Houses are mostly on the left bank for the first 270 m and then both banks are urbanized. The last 200 m of this site, we can see breakwaters on both sides of the river. Stream bed composition changes and so does the slope of the banks.

Action Required:

Bank stabilization is important in the last section of this site. Breakwaters are good but the absence of vegetation may be harmful on the long term. Try to encourage the establishment of vegetation and also the maintenance of good sewage systems.
