The potential of barrier removal to reconnect europe's rivers. Out of over 30,000 assessed barriers along larger rivers across Europe the study identifies 858 barriers with high reconnection potential in large and medium-sized rivers, which would allow to reconnect about 14,400 km of rivers. In the EU27, this figure would amount to 732 barriers with high reconnection potential, allowing to reconnect 11,500 km of rivers.
