Chapter Summary

The Porec creek is a small water course in the central part of the Borská Lowland, Western Slovakia. This chapter discusses the changes in land use and water management that have occurred in the catchment, and then analyses possible restoration measures which can be taken to reduce the negative effects of hydrological changes carried out in the past. Following several years of studying and consultations with the stakeholders, some restoration measures have recently been implemented. Wind blown deposits are most common in the catchment, particularly in the upper and middle reaches of the catchment. The Porec Creek itself has created its own floodplain with fine-grained, rather clayey sand deposits originating from the upper parts of its catchment. The hydraulic features of the Porec stream were studied in seven cross-sections. The restoration measures in the Porec stream catchment are a valuable first step in restoring the hydrological system of Abrod.
