BUND Naturschutz chapter Ostallgäu-Kaufbeuren rewetted 9 ha of the Hertinger Moos by blocking drainage ditches. Furthermore they removed trees (mainly spruce) and other woods.
To improve the water structure of the Isar river the water authority Weilheim implemented structure elements (e.g. deadwood, planting of willows). The structure elements improve the habitat quality especially for fish.
The Lindenberg moors are the largest existing moor complex in the districtLindau. The BUND Naturschutz (Friends of the Earth Germany) carries out bush clearance measures in the area and has developed a maintenance and development concept. This concept includes regular mowing of litter meadows, scrub clearance measures, the creation of buffer strips at ditches to reduce the eutrophication of the forest lake, and the damming of ditches.
Due to the piping of the Walger Franz stream and a small drop structure, the entrance for fish to the small stream was impossible. To improve fish migration the water authority Weilheim removed the pipe and the drop structure. In the event of flooding, it is now possible for fish to withdraw from the powerful flow of the Isar.
Due to the danger of draining the Schemer Filz in the Jachenau, 74 dams were built to keep the water in the area and to raise the water level again. This measure preserves the CO2 storage function of the moor.
The Werdensteiner Moos, with an area of approx. 85 ha, is one of the largest raised bogs in the district of Oberallgäu. Together with the litter meadows of the Oberdorfer Moos, it is designated as a FFH area and thus part of the European network of protected areas NATURA 2000. More than 30 years ago, the rewetting of the Werdensteiner Moos began. A moor trail leads around the moor with information about the history, the flora and fauna of the moor and its importance for the protection of biodiversity and the climate.
The Kiefernbach was regulated at the beginning of the twentieth century. The river bed and the embankment got protected by bricked or concreted lintels. In order to improve the ecological situation and the flood protection the drop structures was replaced by river bed ramps, the embankment was flattened and the watercourse was widened. After these measures gravel islands can form and alluvial forest can develope.
Following 2005 floods, the water authority Kempten improved the flood protection at the torrent Argen near the development area Seltmans-Süd (municipality Weitnau). In course of that the river bed was widened, retention area was created and the river bed was redesigned in order to imrove the ecological passability.
The water authority Kempten has rewetted a moor in the Rottachtal valley by damming up ditches. This is intended to restart peat formation, prevent the release of CO2 and prevent nutrients from being released into the surrounding waters through decomposition of the bog body. Furthermore, the habitat of endangered species is to be protected.
The area represents the largest and qualitatively most important bog complex of the Alpine fens in Central Europe. The aim of the project is to secure the totality of the natural or near-natural habitats, in particular the wetlands, nutrient-poor grasslands, moor forests and the forests of the so-called Köchel, on a large scale and permanently and to develop them according to the requirements of nature conservation. Diverse habitats such as the Murnauer Moos would not survive if their near-natural biotopes, such as the moors, were isolated in an otherwise intensively used environment.
