Reasons for river restoration

Mitigation of a pressure Flood defence
Hydromorphology Width & depth variation, Continuity of sediment transport, Channel pattern/planform
Biology Fish: Abundance
Physico-chemical
Other reasons for the project Bank erosion, Landscape enhancement


Measures

Structural measures
Bank/bed modifications Bed raising, Removal of rip-rap
Floodplain / River corridor Floodplain reconnection, Tree planting, Connection to wider floodplain
Planform / Channel pattern Former channel filled
Other
Non-structural measures
Management interventions More sensitive grazing
Social measures (incl. engagement)
Other
