The Schwechat is a direct ecological link between the Biosphere Reserve Wienerwald and the Nationalpark Donau-Auen.

In the source region the focus lays on hydrological improvements and the revitalization of riparian forests.

In the channalized middle part the priority is on the improvement of the river morphology and removal of hard bank structures.

In Schwechat City small scale structural and ecological improvements should lead to better habitat siuation within the urban area.
