Meteo-hydro and hydraulic risk
The terms meteo-hydro and hydraulic risk are used to identify the phenomena triggered by “unfavourable weather conditions” and the effective or potential damage caused by waters in general, be they surface, in liquid or solid form, or underground.
The most typical examples of hydrogeological phenomena comprise thunderstorms, winds and sea storms, fog, snow and ice, heat waves, landslides, floods, coastal erosion, subsidence and avalanches.
The meteo-hydro and hydraulic risk is strongly influenced also by man’s actions. Density of population, the ever- progressing urbanization, abandonment of mountain areas, unauthorized buildings, continuous deforestation, the use of non eco-friendly agricultural techniques and the missing maintenance and upkeep of river beds and slopes have definitely worsened the hydrogeological instability and highlighted the fragility of our territory.
Central Functional Centre
The Central Functional Centre for meteo-hydro risk is provided for by the 27 February 2004 Directive. It carries out monitoring and surveillance activities of both meteo-hydro and hydraulic events and their effects on the territory.
