In the drier parts of the Krkonoše Mountains, builders are completing the construction of bulkheads and partitions, and they have already built a thousand of them. Thanks to this, it is possible to retain water in the landscape and to return native flora and fauna to nature. The construction of these small structures has already cost the National Park Service tens of millions of crowns.

“We are in the eastern district of Krkonoše, next to the asphalt road called Plynovod in an area that has been severely drained in the past. We are standing in the place where there is a trench and surface embedding technology has been used,” says Václav Jansa on behalf of the Krkonoše National Park administration.

When building such copies, mainly gentle technology is used. “For the commissioning of the entire project, the requirement was to use only tracked excavators with a total weight of up to five tons. And a special conveyor tractor on the tracks.

This particular replay was created about a month ago. “The environment here will change over the years. Thanks to the fact that the water will be retained here, the soil profile will be renewed, so the original species that were supposed to grow here will thrive here, especially the algae,Jansa plans.

Botanist Věra Horáková adds: “A wetland is generally a biotope that reacts very quickly to restoration after revitalization work. The water will rise quickly and allow the plants to return to their natural habitat.


“Our shoes still scream, even though it’s the driest time of the year.” Last year, they built a swimming pool in eřínek and are planning more

The number of water crossings and embankments in the Krkonoše Mountains is constantly increasing. It has already begun to appear in nature. “The water in the clogged canal remains. In previous years the canals were dry and the water did not flow there,Refers to the plant world.

Then the national park workers go back to the places where the structures were built and notice how the amount of water changes there. “By fencing off these drainage channels, we’ve allowed water to stay here,Horakova says.

Of course, this small construction must be completed before winter hits, and he adds: “We still have about the last three sites ahead. Hopefully it will be ready by the end of September, maybe by mid-October.”

The administration of Krkonoše National Park intends to continue building water and sewer barriers in the landscape in the coming years.
