Measures and management challenges

In some countries and regions in the EU, such as the international river basins of the Rhine and Danube, actions have been taken or are ongoing to reconcile inland waterway development with river restoration objectives. Key measures to mitigate the impacts of inland navigation on rivers and lakes include the reconstruction of groynes, the removal of hard bank reinforcements and replacement with soft engineering solutions, the re-connection of side arms, floodplains and ox-bows to restore river habitats, as well as the use of more ecologically orientated dredging for maintenance of waterways.
