Rewilding of the second stretch of the River Errekatxulo in Donostia begins

URA (Basque Water Agency) and the Donostia/San Sebastián City Council have begun the rewilding of the second stretch of the River Errekatxulo in the Belartza industrial estate in the Gipuzkoan capital.

The River Errekatxulo is made up of several stretches in which action will be taken in different phases with the goal of rewilding the majority of them. Last March work was completed on the first phase in the north valley floor, where the concrete structure has been replaced by natural materials so as to restore the ecological potential of the river and allow the dynamics of the environment, vegetation and fauna to gradually create a higher quality river ecosystem than the current one.

This initiative is part of Action C.5.1 Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in river basins

Collaborating entities: Donostia/ San Sebastian City Council and URA.
