Restoration of Nishitakase River (Kyoto City, Kyoto)

Nishitakase River running through Kyoto City was opened as a canal for transportation by water. Later, it was used to discharge the water for textile dyeing such as Kyo Yuzen printing and the color of the river water changed daily and the water quality deterioration was serious.
Under the circumstances, the contamination was reduced and ozone treatment facilities were installed in 1997.Since then the color of the river and foam formation have been improved dramatically and the water environment of this river has greatly recovered. In addition, this river was selected as a "Limpid Stream Renaissance II project river" and because efforts were made to create an environment for water amenities and improve the water quality, a river environment suitable for a stroll in Kyoto has been recovered.
