Launch video of the Life Lagoon Refresh project
The LIFE LAGOON REFRESH project foresees the diversion of a freshwater flow from the Sile river into the lagoon, necessary for recreation of the typical salt gradient of buffer areas between lagoon and mainland, for restoration of the reedbed habitat, and for improvement of the lagoon environment and its biodiversity. The project LIFE Lagoon ReFresh (Life16 NAT/IT/000663) is funded by European Union’s LIFE (2014-2020) financial instrument and contributes to the environmental recovery of a Nature 2000 site (SCI IT3250031 – Northern Venice Lagoon). ISPRA (Italian National Institutefor Environmental Protection and Research) is the Partner Leader, whilst the Environmental Direction of Veneto Region, the University of Venice, the Interregional Superintendency for Public Works in Veneto – Trentino Alto Adige – Friuli Venezia Giulia (OOPP), and IPROS Ingegneria Ambientale Srl. are the Association Partners. The project started on September 2017 and it lasts for 5 years.
