Urban Edge Series – Herbert Dreiseitl and Bettina Dreiseitl-Wanschura: River System Case Studies

Herbert Dreiseitl and urban planner and wife Bettina Dreiseitl- Wanschura, will discuss their experiences with regional scale river restoration projects in the Rhur region of Germany and elsewhere.

“From Britain to the Czech Republic, European nations have been restoring rivers to their natural state — taking down dams, removing levees, and reviving floodplains. For a continent that long viewed rivers as little more than shipping canals and sewers, it is a striking change.” – Fred Pearce • YaleEnvironment360. December 10, 2013.
