Available Spots for the Trip to the Wetlands Area of Cà di Mezzo

Posted on: February 27th, 2014 by intern No Comments


The wetlands area in Ca’ di Mezzo is located in the municipality of Codevigo, in the province of Padua, on the border with the town of Chioggia, near Venice. It was artificially created in 2000 with funds allocated by the Veneto Region to the land reclamation authority of the rivers  Adige and Bacchiglione. The purpose was the reclamation of the Lagoon of Venice through a system of phyto-depuration. The area is a wetland marsh ecosystem completely rebuilt on land previously used for agricultural purposes. The area covers about 30 acres between the Bacchiglione River and the Canal Morto. The phyto-depuration system collects the waters of the Altopiano canal and removes about half the nitrogen, phosphorus and suspended solids before they enter the lagoon of Venice.
The restoration of the environment also enabled the establishment and reproduction of birds, restocking and protection of wildlife migratory and sedentary.
