Description

While preserving the functions of wetlands, floodways reduce the impacts of roads on floodplains allowing the water to pass trough the road in a controlled manner. By using this approach, damage produced by soil and water erosion to the road is also reduced with complementary measures such as rock cladding on the sides of the road and tree planting along the road.
