Over time, watercourses have been the subject of much focus because many often opposing interests are associated with the use of the watercourses. We must both protect our cities from flooding and ensure agricultural drainage. This can happen, for example, if, as the committee recommends, we are given the opportunity to establish proper water parking spaces and improve drainage conditions, including better and more effective river regulations.
But we must also protect birds, insects, fish and plants in and around streams. Here, the expert panel recommends, among other things, that special nature hotspots in the watercourses be developed and protected, and that it should be possible to designate certain watercourses as natural watercourses. And then the municipalities must be supported and have better tools to manage the watercourses and weigh the many different
Interests. A review of the current Section 3 watercourses will, among other things, ensure this.
