The basin project provides for the insertion of a strip of marsh vegetation in a wide step along the edge, so as to interrupt the slope of the bank to avoid accidental falls in deep water. This strip will include species, typical of habitats that are disappearing in our environments, such as wet meadows (molinieti) and magnocarycetes. Among the species used, some are included in the regional red list of Veneto (Allium and Senecio), with a consequent strengthening of these in our territories and an increase in biodiversity.

The project also foresees the construction of a micro-basin in the urban environment whose green furniture will also be cared for with some of the species indicated.
Both interventions, for their demonstrative value and for their replicability, will act as pilot interventions, destined to become examples replicable in other contests on the territory, multiplying their conservation value.
Urban areas are generally characterized by a high population density, the presence of large concreted and waterproofed surfaces, the absence or lack of open spaces and a high rate of anthropogenic activity, such as vehicular traffic, the presence of heating/cooling systems and industrial and production processes. This translates into high levels of pollution at all levels (air, water and soil).
The use of vegetation, particularly within natural water retention measures, makes urban environments healthier and more attractive to live in, thanks to the many benefits that this important component can provide.
