Abstract:
Since the year 2000 the artificial floods on the River Spöl have been considered a model of an ecologically optimized residual flow regime. It had not been possible to carry out the necessary transformation of residual flow within the permits effective at the time. The Federal Energy Office and the Governing Council of Grisons canton had to issue non-permanent exceptions. Recently these were replaced by a definitive regulation, which makes periodic floods a regular feature in the flow regime of the River Spöl.
