"Let's return the rivers to the city"

In 2019, the public initiative "Give the rivers back to the cities" united citizens around the Podborenka River, which flows through the entire length of Izhevsk. 

In an urbanised environment, the Podborenka River has become deserted due to water pollution, poor stormwater management, pollution from roads and industry, soil erosion and landfills in the valleys. Therefore, the primary objective of the project is to increase urban resource efficiency and to create new scenarios for resource use in a small river basin. 

River basin restoreation

In the heart of western Europe, on the Dutch-Belgian border, work began in 2007 on a major habitat restoration project. The 45-kilometre stretch of the river, which originated in the Ardennes as the Meuse and reached the Dutch plain at Maastricht, where it is now called the Meuse, has been restored to its natural state at great cost in terms of time and money. The 1200 hectare RivierPark Maasvallei (Meuse Valley River Park) on the border between the Netherlands and Flanders in Belgium is now one of the most attractive destinations for green tourism.

Sponge garden

The climate is changing: the rain is heavier and the dry periods between are lasting longer. How can we moderate these two extremes? A lot of rain water currently drains through sewers to prevent flooding. However, that does not always work and increases the problem of drought.

One way to deal with this; is to have our urban greenery function like a sponge. A sponge can moderate these extremes; it can absorb water quickly, hold it temporarily and gradually return the water to the subsoil.
