Victory” against the construction of mini-hydro Foz do Mondego river gully in

A Plataforma Mondego Life, over more than three years of fighting is to be congratulated because it has achieved something rare in our country, the back of the construction of a mini-hydro that would hurt coastal communities in the municipalities of Gois, And blackboard especially Penacova, Vila Nova de Poiares and Coimbra, who supported the contest from the start. The dam inviabilizaria descents of tourist Mondego and traditional gastronomy, to prevent the ascent of the river lamprey and several fish that spawn upstream of Penacova, would destroy flora riparian, altering habitat change and fluvial sedimentary environment. It would be a remarkable heritage degraded, well that was saved.
Now is the time to seize the synergies and continue the work done, recreating and improving riparian, with planting of riparian vegetation, endemic, with artificialization, and that due to its rapid growth would create a magnificent natural environment.
It is expected since in 2015 there is a project for the rehabilitation of fish habitats in the Mondego, sponsored by the University of Évora, with European funding, through PROMAR.
With an investment of about 900 thousand euros, and giant, already with a previous study, provides intervention along the river, since Formoselha to Dam Coico, we you go to Loredo, Palheira-Zorro, Ronqueira, Bunker, Formoselha Track and Fishing Vila Nova.
This decision will be welcomed by Save Your Platform, you want to avoid homonymous dam, Upper Douro, to destroy a magnificent river canyon.
A compliment with gratitude the work done by the Mondego platform and one of his mentors. Thanks Paulo Silva.
