Restoration of Kushiro River (Shibecha town, Tsurui village and Kushiro town, Hokkaido)

Kushiro River
(source: RFC)

The natural wetland environment of Kushiro River, which is a registered wetland designated under the Ramsar Convention in 1980, has deteriorated because of the land development in the surrounding area, the increased amount of sediment flowing into the wetland caused by the straightening of the inflow rivers and the lowering of the water table.
The "Kushiro Wetland Natural Environment Regeneration Project," is being conducted mainly by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and Ministry of the Environment to rehabilitate and conserve the wetland by restoring the meandering streams to their original state and controlling the wetland vegetation.
