Restoration of Ushiroda River (Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture)

Ushiroda River, which runs through the center of Miyazaki City, was used to carry a lot of human sewage as a result of the rapid urbanization and the water environment was so deteriorated that the water gave off a terrible smell.
Therefore, it was changed into a culvert as the Ushiroda main trunk line, on which a greenway park was constructed. Moreover, a babbling stream waterway was constructed in the greenway park by using the high-quality treated water from the sewage treatment plant under the "Aqua-park Model Project".
Today, children and adults are attracted to the clear stream like before containing fish and the green spaces for recreation that have been created.
Ushiroda River was selected as one of the 100 revived waters and won the "Handmade Hometown Award" in 1988 and 2007 as well as the "City Landscape Award" in 1993.
