In order to re-establish the wetland huge parts of the ground need to be displaced. It is necessary for the old dikes at the fish hatchery to be removed and reconstructed, new dikes need to be built, certain parts of the terrain is necessary to be raised and others should go deeper. Upon completion of the construction works the Iskar river will flow in the new river bed where the river will split in a couple of shallow, slow-flowing streams on a 2,7 km long meander with an average width of about 200 m.
