Detailed design project of the defences against Extraordinary Flooding of the Kadagua River at Mimetiz, a municipality of Zalla (Biscay). The project includes 1D and 2D modelling of the flood zones and the detailed design of the necessary solutions including: the replacement of a bridge, the expansion of the hydraulic capacity of the riverbed upstream of the bridge and implementation of a floodway downstream, including a new bridge over the floodway to ensure the traffic permeability.
