Rottal BurnIntroduction
The RRC Manual of River Restoration Techniques aims to help river managers identify potential restoration techniques for use in river restoration and sustainable river management. It now includes 64 case examples which can be downloaded as PDFs at 35 sites across the UK. The panel ‘Tabular overview of techniques’ opens a simple list of all case examples with easy access PDF links for users accessing information using mobile devices.

How was the manual updated

How do I use it?

References are also provided. The Manual is now an online-only resource; however the RRC are able to print off hard copies with a small charge for p&p. Alternatively you can download each version of the Manual as one PDF (note: low-resolution only) to inform your project’s design and development.

Your chance to comment
The Manual has been put together with the support of contacts involved in the projects. However if you would like further explanation or to leave feedback, contact RRC.
