- Restoring water courses, for example re-meandering, reprofiling and deculverting stretches of rivers/streams historically straightened
- Instream and bank works to increase habitats and/or reduce flow, erosion, sediment wash out and reduce water temperature increases
- Increasing lowland ponds and other water and wetland habitats.
