WaterTalks: Water Storage: Nature-based Solutions for Resilient Communities Video

Pieter van der Zaag is a professor of integrated water resources management at the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education in Delft, The Netherlands and professor at Delft University of Technology. This talk was presented on Sept. 15, 2016 as part of the Water Institute's ongoing WaterTalks series.
The presentation addresses if alternative ways of increasing water storage capacity exist that minimize negative impacts. Topics covered include: 1) enhanced availability and use of groundwater through soil and water conservation measures and artificial recharge and 2) enhanced storage capacity in dry river beds of seasonal (ephemeral) rivers, through so-called sand dams.

Medmery managed realignment scheme Video

Medmerry is the largest UK sea realignment scheme project. The new sea defences will significantly reduce the risk to 350 homes, local infrastructure and the main road into Selsey. This groundbreaking project has also provided the opportunity to create more than 180 hectares of important new wildlife habitat which compensates for the loss of similar conservation areas in and around the Solent.

Cache La Poudre River Restoration through Partnerships Video

This video showcases the work of the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department's restoration at McMurry and North Shields Ponds, lowering unnaturally steep riverbanks and removing an abandoned diversion structure which improved the habitat on the Cache la Poudre River. In 2014, the Natural Areas Department received two Blue Grama awards from the Colorado Open Space Alliance for their outstanding conservation work.
