The Orshinsky Mokh peatland is situated in the Kalinin District of the Tver Province. Peat was extracted by means of hydraulic harvesting that gave way to milling in the 1950s and 1960s. The rewetting project was developed in 2014 by experts from the Peat Institute of the Tver State Technical University. In 2016, a rewetting design for the third 1,000 ha site was developed by the Tver project team. The ultimate goal of rewetting is restoration of original peatland ecosystems. A complete restoration may take 5 to 20 years depending on the site's location.
