3344 BIOMURA Removal of heightned banks to stimulate the erosion and widening the river profile, intoruduction of rock-fill riffle to raise water levels during low and average flows, reopening of the side- channels and intoruduction of a system of wooden sluices to raise groundwater tables. Conservation of Mura banks, Slovenia
3345 BIOMURA - Conservation of biodiversity of the Mura river in Slovenia The bed of the river Mura that flows through NE Slovenia is well preserved, especially in the middle and lower stream, where it is characterised by embankment erosion, deposition of the sand, flooding and side-channels. Deepening of the riverbed due to send accumulation behind the dams of hydropower stations in Austria, however, has resulted in a greater risk of flooding. There are no dams on Slovenian river section, but plans to alter this situation are resurfacing. Conservation of Mura banks, Slovenia
3346 Case study: Biomura LIFE06NAT/SI/000066 The Lippenbroek Regulated Tidal Exchange (RTE) scheme is a pilot scheme for the so-called controlled reduced tide (CRT) concept which Belgian authorities are planning to apply to (sections of) numerous flood storage areas in the near future to create tidal habitats (e.g. at Kruibeke, where the first inundation will likely occur in 2011). The CRT concept involves the use of two exchange mediums, one high inlet medium (e.g. a weir/spillway or sluice/culvert), and a lower outlet medium, which may be capped with a gravity controlled sluice gate.

3348 A FEKETE-KÖRÖS ERDEINEK VíZPÓTLÁSA ÉS 15 ÉVES ÖKOLÓGIAI EREDMÉNYEI Restoration of floodplain watercourse network to provide surface water supply to the forest from backwater of flood waves on the river Körös. During the execution of the job there came into being a 38.8 km long water-flow and a free water surface of 15.7 hectares. The work touched a forest area of more than 400 hectares with a direct positive ecological impact. During the execution of the system we were able to renovate partially a forest area damaged more than about 150 years ago. Habitat Reconstruction in the forests of the Körös Valley, Hungary

3351 TERRITORIO VISÓN - Recuperacion ambiental del Territorio Fluvial; espacio vital del vison europeo (Mustela lutreola) - LIFE09 NAT/ES/000531 El proyecto LIFE+ TERRITORIO VISÓN es un proyecto financiado por la Comisión Europea a través del Programa LIFE+ 2009 “Naturaleza y Biodiversidad”. Tiene por objeto la recuperación de los hábitats fluviales y la mejora de la biodiversidad de los tramos bajos de los ríos Arga y Aragón, lugares de importancia comunitaria (LIC) incluidos en la Red Natura 2000, y la zona de mayor densidad de población de visón europeo (Mustela lutreola) en Europa occidental, a la vez que optimiza la defensa contra inundaciones.

3352 El agua en navarra La política del agua está viviendo un profundo proceso de renovación en Europa. Esta política se fundamenta en los principios de la Directiva Marco del Agua, que obliga a una nueva planificación hidrológica. Los ejes de esta planificación pretenden favorecer el buen estado de las aguas al tiempo que garantizan su disponibilidad y su uso sostenible. Navarra está adaptando sus políticas al nuevo modelo europeo de gestión y administración del agua. Avanzar hacia una gestión más sostenible del agua requiere el compromiso y la corresponsabilidad de los diferentes agentes institucionales y sociales.

3358 Foro del Agua de Navarra. Documento Técnico para la Participacion Publica en la Cuenca del Arga. Documentacion previa para su análisis. Pamplona, marzo 2007 El objetivo de este documento es servir como base para la participación pública en torno a la gestión del agua y de sus principales problemas en la cuenca del Arga. De esta forma, se promueve el proceso de participación exigido por la Directiva Marco del Agua (2000/60) para la elaboración del Plan Hidrológico de la cuenca del Ebro, que tiene que ser aprobado en diciembre de 2009. Este plan va a suponer la revisión del plan hidrológico que se aprobó en 1998 y además, la incorporación de los requerimientos establecidos por la DMA. Por otro lado, la “estrategia para la gestióny el uso sostenible del agua en Navarra” también promueve estos procesos de participación pública, fundamentales para que el público en general y los afectados más directamente por el tema puedan participar en el proceso de la toma de decisiones.

3362 Effect of land development and forest management on hydrologic response in southeastern coastal wetlands: a review Land development activities such as agriculture, clear cutting, peat mining, and the planting of forest plantations on wetlands can affect the hydrologic behavior of these ecosystems by affecting their water storage and release patterns on the landscape. The effects of these development activities on hydrologic fluxes in peatlands (Typic Medisaprists) were compared to the effects of forest management practices in North Carolina using a field-tested hydrologic simulation model (DRAINMOD). Simulations revealed that natural peat-based (Histosol) pocosin systems lose 66% (80 cm) of the 123 cm of average annual rainfall by evapo-transpiration (ET) and 34% (42 cm/yr) via annual runoff. Annual runoff values were 63 cm/yr for peat mining areas, 48 cm/yr for cleared peatlands, 46 cm/yr for peatlands converted to agriculture and 34 cm/yr for pine plantations, once the forest canopy is closed. Thus, these wetland alterations, except for forestry, significantly increased runoff and decreased ET compared to the natural ecosystem. Forest pine plantation management decreased runoff and increased ET. A case study of the effects of forest management practices was reviewed for a 15-year-old drained loblolly pine plantation growing on fine sandy loam soils (Thermic Typic umbraquults) in the coastal plains of North Carolina. Forestry activities such as thinning (i.e., reduced leaf area index by 50%) decreased ET and canopy interception and nearly doubled drainage loss (38 cm/yr to 60 cm/yr). Commonly applied forest practices, such as drainage, increased the average number of flow events with flows > 5 mm/day to 86 days per year from 26 days per year under natural conditions.

3363 Changes in the functioning of wetlands along environmental gradients One of the prevalent gradients in wetlands is the continuum of depth and frequency of flooding. While much emphasis has been placed on the importance of hydrology as a driving force for wetlands, few other perspectives have emerged to demonstrate unifying patterns and principles. In contrast to the wetness continuum, the functioning of wetlands can be separated into two broad categories: (1) landscape-based transitions that occur within a wetland or group of similar wetland types and (2) resource-based transitions that allow comparisons of the flow of water and processing of nutrients among very different wetland types. Landscape-based continua include the transition from upstream to downstream in riverine wetlands and between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems within a wetland.

3368 Dijkteruglegging Lent In the vicinity of Lent the existing dike is moved land inwards and in this new area a new trench is dug. This will widen the river bend between Nijmegen and Lent and will assure better water flow off during high tide situations. The estimated drop in water levels in extreme situation is up to 35 cm.
