European Progress on river Renaturalisationby Richard D. Hey, (M.ASCE),

Abstract: Most restoration projects in Europe have been designed to maximise species richness with little regard for channel stability. To recreate a sustainable natural channel it is necessary to i) determine the stability, morphology and geotechnical characteristics of the river, ii) develop a soft engineering design based on the survey data, and iii) evaluate the stability of the design.
