Environmental restoration

There are more than 80 water catchment points in the protected area, in many cases constructed without respect for the environment. Where possible, acceptable levels of naturalness must therefore be reconstructed, bearing in mind that springs and wetlands must be considered as elements of extreme sensitivity and vulnerability and that the Park exists to safeguard resources such as water which on this planet is starting to assume the dimension of a precious asset. As regards environmental deterioration of abandoned farmland, the Plan proposes a series of priority measures involving grass cutting and stopping the advance of woodland.
In the case of service infrastructure, the Plan provides for any new networks which may need to be constructed on the valley floor in both conservation areas and economic and social development areas to be buried.
