The workshop was organised because the municipality at the time had no ideas what to do with an artificial pond. It's main use is as a fish farming facility. The pond is in immediate vicinity of a larger river Savinja.
As part of the workshop we did a historical analysis of the river. The river was heavily regulated through the ages. The river was regularly flooding so along the river bed there were a lot of interventions made to regulate and prevent the flooding. But the measures were not coordinated and were solely the response to the flooding events so the effects multiplied. Because of increasing urbanization the river bed was made ever so narrower and with that the speed of the river increased. As the consequence of that when the flooding occurs the after-effects are almost always severe.
The workshop was trying to make a thorough analysis, take into account all the data available and try to give a comment to already proposed solutions and plans from the government and give suggestions how to solve the problems.
