Parmi les excursions organisées le 24 octobre, le PARN a participé à la visite d’un chantier de correction torrentielle dans la Province du Tyrol, sur le thème d’un « concept intégré de protection contre les risques de crues torrentielles » (excursion n°4). Cette visite portait sur une série d’ouvrages de protection en cours de construction par le Service de contrôle des torrents et des avalanches du Tyrol, en présence du maire de la commune. Elle a offert aux participants l’exemple d’un cas de bonnes pratiques de gestion concertée entre collectivité et administration en matière d’entretien des ouvrages, reposant notamment sur l’utilisation d’une base de données conjointe, qui facilite le suivi des visites annuelles et la priorisation des interventions sur ces ouvrages.
