Conditioning of the Bed and Banks of Avia River in Ribadavia (Orense)
The conditioning included the rectification of the slope of the Avia River course between two urban bridges in Ribadavia, so as to improve draining conditions and reduce the possibilities of floods in the area. The collector which crossed the course of the river was also demolished. The river was dredged and the accumulated material on the riverbed was removed, and a new treatment system with collectors on the banks of the river was built with a pumping station for wastewater. The work was completed with a pedestrian walk area which changed the aesthetics and landscape of the area.
