River Chiascio Steaming

Posted in Infrastrutture



Diga di Casanuova sul Chiascio, Valfabbrica (PG)
The work of maintenance and reinforcing of the right river bank has been accomplished by the building of a raising on the river bank to stop the bank movement toward the valley.

The whole structure extends on a 15-hectare surface, with a maximum height of 43 metres.

The most part of the materials used to embrace the river bank and stop its sliding came from the riverbed, in order to use eco-compatible materials and make the whole framework water-resistant against river waving movement.

Other elements came to complete the project:

  • column reinforcing D 600 mm, applied by the use of the “deep mixing” technique
  • ground-reinforcing with micro pales D 90/260 mm
  • draining metal pipes D 1.000 and D 1.500, 8,9 mm thickness
  • natural escarpment stabilisation by the application of a double-twisted metal net
  • change of course of Tragino moat with natural engineering interventions
  • local detecting, measuring and controlling activities
