Délimiter l'espace de bon fonctionnement de cours d'eau

La coordination générale de ce travail a été réalisée par Benoît Terrier et Stéphan Stroffek (agence de léau Rhône Méditerranée Corse)

L’orientation fondamentale 6-A du SDAGE Rhône Méditerranée 2016-2021 préconise de restaurer ou préserver un espace de bon fonctionnement pour atteindre le bon état écologique des cours d’eau. Elle vise aussi à optimiser le développement des différents usages, pour l’actuel et pour le futur, et faire en sorte qu’aucun d’entre eux ne s’exerce au détriment des autres : « La restauration d’un bon fonctionnement hydrologique et morphologique doit être génératrice de bénéfices durables, tant pour les milieux, quelle que soit la dimension des masses d’eau et leur localisation, que pour les activités humaines au travers des services rendus par les écosystèmes ».

Many of these rivers become severely impacted as a result of pollution, over abstraction of water, dredging and other works within the channel and adjoining floodplain.
