This manual deals with the practical management and restoration of lakes and other watersheds in Lakepromo-countries, which are Finland, Denmark, Estonia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary, Spain and Russia. From each country was chosen at least one pilot area (a lake, wetland, lagoon etc.) the planning of which was mutually observed and supported during the project implementation. The connecting problems in these areas were excessive nutrient loads and the consequenses of eutrophication (algal blooms, oxygen depletion, reduced recreational values, decreasing transparency of water etc.). Special attention was paid to collaborative planning and public participation.
This publication is a part of the EU Interreg IIIC project ”Lakepromo – Tools for Water Management and Restoration Processes (2004 – 2007)”.
