PROJECT SUMMARY

Living with Lakes Center for freshwater restoration and research

It has taken many different measures over a number of years to rehabilitate the severely degraded environment of an acid-rain drenched mining city into a healthy landscape again.

Symbolic of the metamorphosis is the Living with Lakes Center for freshwater restoration and research. Its interdisciplinary team is guided by the mantra of “restore, reduce and renew”.
