Reasons for river restoration

Mitigation of a pressure Riparian development
Hydromorphology Quantity & dynamics of flow, Structure & condition of riparian zones
Biology Fish: Species composition, Fish: Abundance, Fish: Disturbance-sensitive species
Physico-chemical
Other reasons for the project Landscape enhancement


Measures

Structural measures
Bank/bed modifications Removal of bank reinforcements
Floodplain / River corridor Creation of natural floodwater dynamics
Planform / Channel pattern
Other
Non-structural measures
Management interventions More sensitive floodplain maintenance
Social measures (incl. engagement)
Other
