Information on retained water:
No quantitative data. However riparian forests were planted and buffer stripes installed along the river shore. These measurements favour an increase of water storage capacity.
Information on increased water storage:
No quantitative data. Side arms were reconnected to the main channel and the riverbed itself was enlarged. As a consequence storage capacity must have increased.
Information on runoff reduction:
Water quality overall improvements:
Information on Water quality overall improvements:
Riparian forests may act as buffers for diffuse pollution input for water from fields (nitrogen, phosphorous, herbicide flux).
Soil quality overall soil improvements:
Information on Soil quality overall soil improvements:
No monitoring is done on this aspect since it was not targeted in the project.
