Davos, a city way up in the mountains at 1,560 metres is located on the Landwasser River, in the Swiss Alps (East of Switzerland).

Debris flow mitigation measurement in Davos.
The debris retention dams allow smaller sized particles to pass through downstream, while the large boulders with high destructive potential are retained. This is also designed to keep a  healthy  riverine environment.
