Restoration and protection of water resources

Restoration of water resources means the restoration of both lakes and rivers aimed at improving the condition and usability of the body of water. Lakes can be restored by means such as dredging and raising the water level by building a submerged weir. In river restorations, dredged rivers can be restored by laying rocks in a stream or by modifying weirs so that fish can pass through them (natural fishway, technical fishway, demolition of weirs). Water protection and retention structures suitable for catchment areas include wetlands, overland flow fields and riverbanks that consist of two levels.

  • Restorations of lakes by means such as raising the water level and dredging, and river restorations, including restorations of rapids and restoring of fish migration routes
  • Investigations and proposed actions to reduce the stress in catchment areas
  • Structures and actions to support efforts to restore catchment areas, such as wetlands, riverbanks that consist of two levels and dredging
