The restoration programme for the River Rosselle was launched in 2006 and is intended to restore the banks and the main riverbed of the Roselle valley. The River Rosselle was considered to be the most polluted waterway in Europe as a result of the serious detrimental effects of coal-mining in the area.
The restoration plan affects the River Rosselle from Saint-Avold to the frontier with Germany at Petite Rosselle.
It is intended to restore a more natural flow to the River Rosselle and to return the banks to a good ecological condition.
The work is essentially based on planting, removing weirs, creating embankments and wet zones, etc.
Work has been in progress since 2007 and the investment has been in the order of 3 million euros.
