3547 Case study:Restore riparian floodplain habitats maintained in reserve "Dolna topchia" and run off on his sleeve "Malka Tundzha" Design and construction of hydraulic estructures on river Tundzha (a weir and one channel of 900 m) for recovery of riparian wetland biotopes maintained in reserve "Dolna topchia" and run off on his sleeve "MalkaTundzha". The main objective of the project is to restore the conditions necessary for the maintenance of riparian biotopes. River floodplain restoration on the Tundzha, Bulgaria
3494 Case study:The Babina Restoration Project Until the 20th century vast areas of the Danube Delta faced only minimal human impacts through extensive fishery and reed harvesting. Since then the Danube Delta has undergone multiple human impacts like embankment, channelization and drainage. Moreover, large areas were diked and the polders used for agriculture. The Babina polder (2.100 ha) was reconnected to the Danube in 1994 and recovery has been monitored by the Danube Delta National Institute for Research and Development. Within a few years a redevelopment of the site-specific biodiversity occurred and ecosystem services like nutrient retention and fish recruitment became obvious. Additionally, the reconnected polder enable reed harvesting, grazing, fishing and ecotourism. Babina Restoration Project, Romania
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.

3398 Cerknisko Jezero - Intermittent Cerknica Lake, Project Description The project aimed to ensure long-term favourable conditions for the conservation of turloughs and other endangered habitat types and associated plant and animal species at Lake Cerknica. It simultaneously sought to promote an even development of local agriculture, forestry, fishing, tourism, recreation and education in accordance with natural values.

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.

3479 Characterization of the Ezousas aquifer of SW Cyprus for storage recovery purposes using treated sewage effluent A hydrogeological characterization of the Ezousas alluvial aquifer, located in SW Cyprus, has been conducted to assess its suitability for groundwater recharge with 5 Mm3 per year of chlorinated disinfected tertiary treated sewage effluent from the Paphos Municipality Wastewater Treatment Plant. Results from a 3 year field study conducted to establish the regional groundwater regime and to define the aquifer hydrology are presented. Pumping and constant-head permeability tests were used to estimate the key hydraulic properties of the aquifer system. The storage capacity was assessed to be 4.2 Mm3. The bedrock of the aquifer, near the coast, was found to be some 40 m below sea level, thus indicating the potential for seawater intrusion. A monitoring programme consisting of recording piezometric heads and electrical conductivities was used to observe the position of the seawater†“freshwater interface, so that rates of abstraction and recharge could be determined, to maintain a stable interface. The quality of the treated sewage effluent, and of native and abstracted groundwater, was continuously assessed in terms of salinity, heavy metals, persistent organic compounds and microbiota, to optimize the quality of the downstream groundwater used for local irrigation.

3397 Chemin du Vieux-clos: étang de rétention et biotope The concerned plot was part of ponds area before 1930. It has been classified as agricultural land. In 1990, it became a urban plot; water management became an issue and the solution found was to create a pond. Retention pond in Chêne Bougerie, Switzerland
3384 Cinco anos de recarga artificial en el acuí­fero de la Cubeta de Santiuste (Segovia) Se ha llevado a cabo el seguimiento durante los cinco años de funcionamiento del dispositivo de recarga artificial de acuíferos o Managed Aquifer Recharge (en adelante MAR) construido por el Ministerio de Agricultura (MAPA) y la Junta de Castilla y León (JCL) en la Cubeta de Santiuste (Segovia). En este periodo se han ido ejecutando mejoras derivadas de la experiencia con objeto de incrementar la tasa de infiltración y obtener una eficiencia mayor en el esquema tradicional de gestión hídrica para el regadío.

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.

3339 Conservation of Senne and Medzibrodozie SPAs in Slovakia LIFE06 NAT/SK/000114 The centre of the Special Protected Area which is 2703 ha, is a fish pond system. It involves 26 production ponds and one non-commercial as a part of the National Nature Reserve (NNR), 213,31 ha with buffer zone of 211,28 ha. The total fish pond area is about 700 ha. Within the NNR three bird islands are important breeding sites of Night Herons, Little Egrets and Cormorants. In reedbeds other birds like grebes, coot, rails, ducks, swans, herons, harriers ect. are found. In July 1990 the area was involved in Ramsar sites with an international importance.

3458 Création de chenaux de crues et restauration des échanges entre lit majeur et lit mineur sur la Vezouze La Vezouze est un cours d’eau de deuxième catégorie piscicole de 75 kilomètres de long. Affluent de la Meurthe, elle draine un bassin versant essentiellement agricole de 560 km2. La Vezouze possède un régime de type pluvial et connaît une rapide répercussion des pluies sur son débit. Il en résulte des crues régulières mais souvent violentes dans le secteur urbanisé de Lunéville. Lunéville, Floodplain restoration and reconnection of hydraulic annexes, France
