Welcome to the Regional administration of lake restoration initiatives (LakeAdmin) project website. In this project good lake restoration practices will be assessed and shared throughout Europe.
The LakeAdmin project has been co-financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and made possible by the INTERREG IVC Programme.
The economic values of clean and safe water are well established. Lakes, ponds and reservoirs provide water for drinking, irrigation, recreation, fish, natural and cultural values and other ecosystem services. However, despite remarkable investments in wastewater treatment, the quality of many waters is still affected by internal and external factors such as sediments, agriculture and other diffuse sources. These problems can be tackled by lake management and restoration measures.
LakeAdmin follows up on the INTERREG IIIC North project LakePromo, which in 2004-2007 presented an overview of lake restoration practices. However, in planning concrete measures the LakeAdmin partners see a need to review the experiences of case studies in more detail.
