3530 Run-off treatment of highly fluctuating waters with subsurface vegetated drainage ditch and river bed with meanders Current research suggests using vegetated drainage ditch as an additional practice in the mitigation of surface water pollution. The paper discusses the prototype of vegetated drainage system Glinscica (VDSG) composed of a vege-tated drainage ditch (VDD) and a new river bed with me-anders (RBM) Pollution Treatment on the Glinščica, Slovenia

3284 Sigmaplan - Vallei van de Grote Nete In de Vallei van de Grote Nete tussen Nijlen en Geel, krijgt de kronkelende rivier opnieuw meer ruimte, via een combinatie van de aanleg van een winterbedding en gecontroleerde waterbuffergebieden. Dat zijn GOG's zonder ringdijk. De winst is dubbel: de kans op overstromingen is kleiner en geleidelijk kan er weer natte natuur groeien, in de vorm van waardevol wetland.

3287 Small (natural) water retention in rural areas Since 1960`s in Poland a phrase „small retention† has been used although it has been unknown in other countries. †œSmall retention† means various forms of human activity aiming towards limiting the fast water runoff after snow melting and heavy rains. It is believed that water that has been retained in periods of its excess can supply water courses during summer. It can also be used for agricultural purposes as it increases water availability for crops and improves biodiversity of rural areas. Many different methods of water retention have been defined. Among others, increase of potential retention of surface waters can be achieved by construction of reservoirs or damming on rivers and lakes. Ground water retention capacity can be improved by increasing recharge of aquifers and improvement of soil structure in the aeration zone. Due to the form and way of implementation of small retention measures they can be divided into technical and non-technical measures. In other words, small retention can be defined as a set of measures aiming towards reconstruction of natural retention in the catchment that has been modified or destroyed by human activity. In this paper, it has been stressed that activities and tasks undertaken in Europe in recent years under phrase †œincrease of natural retention† can be covered by the definition of small retention.

3271 Small scale measures under the "Waters neighborhood Days" in Hamburg - Factsheet The core of the activities carried out on Osterbek river was the installation of flow control arms at mean water level. Due to the width of the bundle of sticks of 2 to 2.5 m, they should contribute to a significant narrowing of the broad streambed. They were attached to three pegs that were fixed at the ground. In order to avoid under- or backflushing, the brushwood were strengthened with stones, coarse and fine gravel. A total of 14 flow control arms were installed at equal distances approximately transverse to the direction of flow on the left and right bank . In a wide section an island of gravel and coarse of about 15 m was applied. Also in the Middle Bille flow control arms were installed consisting of dead wood, stones and gravel. The brushwood was shortened to a length of about 1 m and transversely and with a slight tilt attached to two pegs in the sole. The height of the installment was also based on mean water level Small scale measures under the 'Waters neighborhood Days' in Hamburg, Germany
3288 Small water reservoirs †“ their function and construction Small water reservoirs play important role in rural areas. They used to be very popular, but most of them have been devastated in the last century. It is worth to restore them and to construct new ones. Very small reservoirs (ponds) can be constructed in economical and cost efficient way by individual farmers. In regard to damming below 1.0 m and to reservoirs situated outside protected areas, the permission for construction and the environmental impact assessment is not required. However, one should always keep in mind that even the smallest construction is the work of engineering and should be performed in accordance with the current standards. The increase of available water resources and improvement of water quality demand various measures including those aimed at reducing and limiting water runoff and pollutants transport from the river basins. One of the methods to improve the structure of water balance and the amount of water in rivers is the construction of a large number of small reservoirs, wetland reconstruction etc. Such reservoirs may be divided to: recreational, floristic and faunistic conservation sites, swimming pools, water quality protection (constructed wetlands) and infiltration reservoirs. Reservoirs can have many functions of the economic and natural character. If they are designed and constructed properly they can be a valuable element of the natural landscape in rural areas. Basic data for designing of small reservoirs serving mainly recreational (decorative) purposes and those used for water treatment and ground water recharge are given in the paper.

3277 SMIVAL Rapport d'activité 2009 (Activity report 2009) The SMIVAL (Syndicat Mixte Interdépartemental de la Vallée de la Lèze - an association of 24 communes localised in the Lèze's valley) has been created in 2003. It is responsible for leading, for defining and for implementing actions for a qualitative and quantitative use of the Lèze and its tributaries and for preventing its floods. For preventing floods, an actions programme (called PAPI) has been set up. One action refers to the plantation of floodbreaking hedgerows in order to slow down the flood peak. Hedgerows are located across the flooding plain of the river and they are regularly spaced every 300 to 500 metres. Partially obstructing the flow, hedges can slow running water to dissipate the force and reduce the impacts of flooding. This is a cumulative effect that is measured across the entire valley, with a significant decrease in rates. According to thre PAPI, 75 km of floodbreaking hedgerows were initially planned to be planted until 2016. Floodbreaking hedgerows in Southern France
