The capacity of ecosystem services in small water retention measures
Karol Mrozik , Piotr Idczak
AbstractThis study identifi es and analyses ecosystem services (ES) in the context of their applicability for drought and flood prevention measures planning undertaken within the framework of small water retention. The results illustrate that ES classifi ed as regulation and maintenance are the most significant because they, one the one hand, contribute the most to improving the flood retention capacity of river catchment areas, whilst on the other hand they provide desirable values that people derive from nature. Furthermore, we also fi nd that the small water retention reservoir is a solution which assures both the best weather hazard prevention as well as the greatest number of benefi ts.
