In the Markdal River Basin we will restore the structure of normalized rivers along a total trajectory of 1 km in the catchment (Mark or tributaries). By restructuring these rivers (meandering, making drainage basis less deep) we will retain water in the upstream valleys. ln periods of droughts, this water provides the essential base flow to downstream parts of the catchment, improving waterquality and quantity.
