It focuses on the experience raised in the Czech Republic, in comparison to the measures taken in other European countries, particularly in the Federal Republic of Germany (Bavaria). A stream bed or a river bed in human settlement residential areas, modified to be a single-purpose capacity canal carrying away something undesirable, has not met the current criteria anymore. In water management, the idea of the stream bed within human settlement residential areas reaching at least the basic conservation status and a favourable visual appearance has been becoming more and more common. Watercourses and their vicinity should offer citizens some spaces for spending leisure and holiday time there. The above trends are in compliance with the view that human settlement residential areas are valuable spaces which should be maintained in favourable status because they provided humans with various benefits. These goals should be met by watercourse restoration within human settlements residential areas. For more details, see a CD-ROM enclosed to the issue.
