3262 Odense Å ved Brobyværk De fleste af vores vandløb er i større eller mindre grad reguleret af menneskets hånd. Denne strækning af Odense Å og Tørring Bæk blev i årene 1944-1950 udrettet og forkortet med 2200 m på en 11,2 km lang strækning. I den forbindelse fik åen et bredt, trapezformet forløb, der lå op til 1,2 m dybere end det tidligere forløb. Udløbet fra Tørring Bæk til Odense Å blev samtidigt flyttet. Arealerne op til åen var desuden drænede for at sikre landbrugsdriften. Restoration of the Odense river, Denmark

3243 Piano di Gestione Basso Aurino †“ Relazione sintetica degli interventi realizzati in localití  Rienzfield, Gatzaue e Molini di Tures (2002-2011) River restoration measures were implemented along the Aurino stream as part of the Aurino management plan. Interventions were grouped in Work Packages and were implemented in different moments within the years 2003-2011. The objectives were flood protection and, secondarily, the improvement of the natural environment. Different interventions were implemented to widen the river bed, such as for example: (i) forests were cleared in the relevant areas, to add space to the river bed; (ii) (artificial) river banks were lowered and enlarged; (iii) re-activation or creation of lateral river branches; (iv) measures to raise the river bed†™s level.

3487 Potentiel écologique d’un ouvrage de rétention et de filtration des eaux pluviales sur une opération de 172 hectares (Reims) ; analyse de la genèse du projet A 172 ha town planning project has been developed near Reims (France) for the last five years. For one of the catchments of this area (72ha) a 15 000 m3 detention pond is being built, in a difficult hydrogeological context since ground water level may rise up to the natural ground.

3223 Preclassification of Ecological Quality in the Odelouca catchment area and its use in restoration guidelines The demands of the Water Framework Directive over the next few years imply considerable effort in the conservation and restoration of river reaches based upon the reliable classification of river corridor conservation status that discloses information on causes of degradation. Using an adaptation of the KT Method, originally developed as part of the National Water Plan, a Map of River Corridor Conservation Status was drawn up for the River Odelouca catchment area that included the definition of existing fluvial reaches using geographic and hydrogeomorphological variables which were then assessed according to the presence of anthropogenic pressures Natural bank stabilization and riparian buffer galleries along the Odelouca River, Portugal
