Rehabilitation of streams


Considerable sums have been devoted to treating the waste water that flows into our watercourses. However, in order to ensure good watercourse quality one has also to ensure that the watercourse has a good physical form. There is more to this than just meanders. This book describes how watercourses can be given new riffles, which oxygenate the water, how the river keeper can clear weeds in a way that ensures good living conditions for the fish, and how one can ensure the trout free passage up to the small brooks where they lay their eggs. The book also explains why it is important that rivers be allowed to overswim adjoining meadows.
