Abstract

During the last centuries the river Rhine underwent a major
regulation process which separated the river­bed from its flood
plains and reduced the available areas for flooding. The river
was straightened and the consequence is the discharge
conditions were strongly changed and many recorded flood events
were occurred.
Serious floods at the river Rhine in 1993 and 1995 resulted in
the policy "Room for the Rivers" and in 1998 in the "Action Plan
Flood Defence" by the International Commission for Protection of
the Rhine (ICPR). The "Action Plan Flood Defence" aims at
improving the protection of people and goods against flood while
integrating ecological improvements of the Rhine and its flood
plains.
Targets include the enlargement of flood plains through dyke
displacement, the protection of valuable flood plains and flood
plain restoration. Further targets are the re­connection of the
rivers backwaters, the restoration of hydrological and
ecological interactions between river and flood plains and the
restoration of the riparian zone. Changing criteria for flood
retention areas will altogether contribute towards a more
