3232 Interventi estesi di riqualificazione fluviale lungo gli affluenti del medio corso del Fiume Dese The Veneto Region, through the †œPlan for diffuse pollution prevention and restoration of water in the draining basins of the Venice Lagoon† financed measures of re-calibration of riverbeds aimed at the renaturation of the hydraulic web, to increase the time of permanence of water and phytodepuration processes in the draining basin. In this framework, the Consorzio Acque Risorgive implemented a series of extended interventions on the area under its responsibility. This case study was implemented as part of these interventions. In particular, it aimed at re-structuring the effluents of the mid course of the Dese river (Rio S. Martino, Rio S. Ambrogio and Scolo Desolino). Such effluents are mostly draining channels, draining water from agricultural fields to the Dese river. The primary objective was the reduction of the amount of N and P reaching the Venice lagoon through phytodepuration. However, at the same time the project carried out the restoration of the draining channel web aimed at reducing flooding issues affecting the area. The following measures were implemented: †¢ Riparian buffer zones †¢ Creation of wetlands †¢ River bed enlargement †¢ Creation and reconnection of floodplain and new buffer strips †¢ Channel naturalization, creation of new meandering channel Restructuring the effluent web in Italy

3438 Komplex élőhelyrehabilitációs tevékenység az Րrségi Nemzeti Park Igazgatóság működési területén.Complex habitat reconstruction in the Րrség National Park There are three measures applied in the national park area primarily for nature rehabilitation, but all measures have water retention aspects. (1) Creating ponds in the forest where run off from forestry roads are collected. The main goal is to create safe breeding ground for reptiles instead of temporary sumps on the roads. 50 ponds created with the total surface 1,100m2. (2) Re-vegetating shelterbelts (groves, wetlands) in agricultural land where 50 years ago these landscape elements were destroyed for agro efficiency reasons. 12 areas of revegetation, their total cover 12,000m2 in an area of 153 ha. (3) Building closures in the drainage channels to enable the flooding of the alder (Alnus) forest and wet meadow to improve their natural quality an important site in the ecological corridor along the stream Csörnöc. The drainage channel's watershed is 42 ha. Diverse Habitat Reconstructions in the Őrség National Park in Hungary

Reconnecting former floodplains at the estuary on a 2500 meter section. Upgrade of the sluices to be able to retain water and the cleaning of the flow bottlenecks to facilitate runoff at flood events. At the settlement section of the stream the development targeted to provide the necessary capacity to drain the residential area. Upstream of the settlement retention pond were created to control runoff through the town and store water. Multi-purpose water management development along the Körös-ér, Hungary
3289 kowalewski.htm An increase of water retention in the programmes of small retention in the country to the year 2015 is estimated at 1141 million m3. It means annual mean increase of retention capacity by c. 60 million m3. Accomplishment of relevant actions in the years 1997†“2007 allowed collecting 57 million m3 in lakes, c. 56 million m3 in artificial reservoirs, 18.5 million m3 in fishponds, c. 10.5 million m3 with the channel retention and over 2 million m3 in other investments. It makes total increase of water retention by 142 million m3 which is 12.4% of target retention and the mean annual increment of c. 13 million m3. The paper presents volumes of retained water, sources and structure of financing, mean unit costs of retention increments and the increase of retention capacity in particular voivodships (acc. to new administration division) in the years 1998†“2007.

3413 Kretinga Special plan and Stormwater Treatment, Akmena-Dane, Lithuania, Report 4.3.3. †¢ This is the first time that this type of ecological adapted stormwater investments have been implemented in Lithuania. If they function as well as predicted and can be disseminated through appropriate channels, there should be good possibilities to introduce similar investments in other Lithuanian towns. †¢ The stormwater Special Plan developed introduces a new approach towards more sustainable stormwater solution from an environmental perspective. A next step would be to introduce likewise Special Plans in other towns/cities in the south Baltic Sea area. If more towns would follow the example by Kretinga this could, in a long term, have a significant positive impact of decreasing harmful substances to the Baltic Sea.

3543 LIFE FOR THE BOURGAS LAKE - Ensuring Conservation of Priority Bird Species and Coastal Habitats at the Bourgas Natura 2000 Wetland Sites The †œLife for the Bourgas lakes† project aims to secure the long-term conservation of the five bird species included in Annex I of the Birds Directive and the sustainable management of their wetland habitats around the city of Burgas. To achieve this, it plans to: Wetland management on the Burgas lakes, Bulgaria
3544 LIFE FOR THE BOURGAS LAKE - Ensuring Conservation of Priority Bird Species and Coastal Habitats at the Bourgas Natura 2000 Wetland Sites The Bulgarian Black Sea coast consists of a complex of coastal wetlands providing important breeding and wintering habitats for a significant number of bird species. The complex is an important migration stop for hundreds of thousands of birds flying on the East-European migratory route “Via Pontica.” Notably, these coastal wetlands are the most significant breeding, wintering and staging sites in Europe for four globally endangered birds: pygmy cormorant (Phalacrocorax pygmeus); Dalmatian pelican (Pelecanus crispus); white-headed duck (Oxyura leucocephala); and ferruginous duck (Aythya niroca) as well as the bittern (Botaurus stellaris). Despite the wetlands being classified as Natura 2000 sites and being protected in specific areas according to national legislation, there are still major threats to these birds that need to be tackled. Many of these come from the immediate proximity of the major Black Sea port and tourist destination, Burgas. They include habitat change and disturbance, power lines, illegal killing, accidental net catching, and industrial accidents.  Wetland management on the Burgas lakes, Bulgaria

3260 Linking floodplain hydraulics and sedimentation patterns along arestored river channel: River Odense, Denmark The links between floodplain hydraulics and deposition of sediment,organic matter and phosphorus were investigated along a 6 km re-meandered channel section of RiverOdense, Denmark. A 2D dynamic river and floodplain model was set up for the investigated floodplainarea. The flow model was validated against in situ measurements of flow velocities and depths duringa one-day field campaign in January 2012. The predicted duration of inundations, distances to inflow, flow velocities, and informationon microtopography were compared with sedimentation patterns on the floodplain. Three distinct flowregimes were predicted by the hydraulic model and were classified as small, medium and large inundation events according to spatial extent and inundation depth. The model predicts spatially and temporally changing zones of confluence on the floodplain due to variations in inundation depth. Restoration of the Odense river, Denmark
