Water Retention Reservoir - Podutik

Water Retention Reservoir - Podutik

The Goal

Due to the key role of the multifunctional flood reservoir in the development of a new perspective in water management and flood prevention, the project aims to be recognised as a good practice example not only in the Ljubljana Urban Region but also in Slovenia.

Local Task Force

Even though the project was mainly facilitated by the City of Ljubljana, several actors participated during the process. For instance, water permissions were granted by the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning as well as by the water sector of the Slovenian Environment Agency; the research, design and hydraulic modelling were conducted by the University of Ljubljana while the design of the educational path was carried out by ICRO Ltd Landscape Architects, with the input from local community; the maintenance of the reservoir was in charged of LiviPlant Ltd.
