3520 Case study:The Holbina-Dunavat Restoration Project Holbina-Dunavat area (S=5630 ha) has been studied from 1994 in order to establish a strategy for ecological restoration by a reintegration of the fish farm basins with the surrounding wetlands by opening the ring dikes around the basins. The positive effects are both ecological (wetland restoration, natural habitat and breeding area for fish and aquatic birds) and socio-economical (development of traditional activities, fishing, livestock and reed harvesting, creation of recreational areas for ecotourism) for the local people. Holbina-Dunavat Restoration Project, Romania
3521 The evolution process in Holbina-Dunavat area during restoration works Mainly during the last decades of the 20th century, the Danube Delta has suffered from human interventions that led to dramatic changes in some areas. These interventions consisted in the dyking of large areas for the purpose of agricultural use, intensive fish-farming and forestry, which resulted in dramatic alterations or disturbances of the water balance. This again had effects on the alteration of natural processes, the ecological balance as well as the characteristic functions of wetlands and led to a deterioration or worse, the loss of area-specific habitats. When the transformation measures were stopped in early 1990, the dyked area covered 97.408 ha (22 %) of the total 482.592 ha. Holbina-Dunavat Restoration Project, Romania
3522 The Fortuna Restoration Project The aim of the project was to connecting agricultural polder Fortuna (2.115 ha) to the Danube regime. Restoration of hydrological regime and hydrological functions means for this area, restoring and establishing the following functions: - habitat for plants and animals typical alluvial areas; - habitat and breeding area for fish and aquatic birds; - reservoir for biodiversity and providing genetic resources; - biocoridor and genetic exchange; - organic production; - biogeochemical circuit elements; - retention of sediments and pollutions; Black Sea biofilter.

3526 Danube birds conservation - Conservation of Endangered Bird Species Populations in Natural Habitats of the Danube Inland Delta The general objective is to improve the conservation status of the floodplain bird species that are protected in the Natura 2000 sites SPA Dunajské luhy (Slovakia) and SPA Szigetkoz (Hungary). The specific objectives of the project are to: -Restore selected wetlands, dried-up river branches and oxbows; -Restore river branch connectivity, water regime and flowing water conditions; -Lease or purchase land following the introduction of appropriate habitat management; -Eliminate fish migration barriers at two strategic points and restore birds†™ food base; -Restore abandoned meadows as feeding and nesting bird habitats; -Restore birds†™ refuges and nesting areas by planting native tree species; -Implement measures preventing unintentional and/or illegal disturbance of the target bird species populations; -Acquire relevant scientific data on target species and their habitats; -Raise awareness among key stakeholders and the public; -Implement additional measures that will make the habitats of target species more attractive for them (e.g. creation of appropriate breeding possibilities). Wetland restoration and remeandering in SPA Dunajské luhy (Slovakia) and SPA Szigetkoz (Hungary)
3527 Conservation of endangered bird species populations in natural habitats of the Danube inland delta In the past, the Danube inland delta represented one of the largest and most diverse natural wetland complexes in Central Europe. Large parts of it have been destroyed during last decades; presently habitat loss and destruction continues as a result of former river regulations and poor area management. The decreasing habitat quality and several other factors (e.g. unregulated disturbance by man) have lead to major decrease of populations of the typical floodplain bird species – black stork (Cicconia nigra), night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), little egret (Egretta garzetta), sand martin (Riparia riparia). Nowadays the pressure of the negative factors continues, therefore urgent actions are needed to recover and/or maintain the quality and quantity of the floodplain avifauna.

3529 Case study: Ecoremediation System (ERM) for treatment of polluted tributary of Glinscica, Slovenia The innovative ecoremediation (ERM) system for treatment of the polluted tributary of GlinšÄica was therefore installed in 2006, the ERM system consists of the sedimentation pond for the deposition of coarse particles and reduction of current flow velocity, a vegetated ditch filled with different mixtures of sand, planted with common reed (Phragmites australis) for the aerobic) “ anaerobic treatment and a meandered revitalized stream bed of the tributary for the additional treatment. Pollution Treatment on the Glinščica, Slovenia
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
3531 Vegetated ditches for treatment of surface water with highly fluctuating water regime Vegetated drainage ditches (VDD) as a type of constructed wetland primarily serve to remove and store excess water associated with irrigation and storm events. Current research suggests using a VDD as an additional practice in the mitigation of surface water pollution. The VDD for water treatment of the Glinscica River was constructed in 2006. The efficiency of the system was evaluated in 2008 and 2009 regarding the reduction of SS, COD, BOD5, NH4-N, NO3-N, NO2-N, TN, ON and TP. The microbiological association developed in the VDD was analyzed with a focus on the identification and quantification of the narG gene as a denitrification indicator. This paper discusses the efficiency of pollution removal and the distribution of the narG gene within the VDD. The results showed that the highly fluctuating water regime was the main reason for the even distribution and abundance of the narG gene throughout the system, regardless of oxygen saturation or the nutrient status of the wastewater. With the exception of SS, pollutant concentrations met the permitted outflow levels. Pollution Treatment on the Glinščica, Slovenia
