Abstract

There is an increasing demand in inner city areas for water-based amenity and recreational facilities. Small neglected water bodies are often found in such areas and this paper examines the benefits and problems of lake rehabilitation with reference to two polluted lakes in Coventry, UK. Rehabilitation methods and techniques are assessed and future management strategies evaluated. Socio-political and ecological problems involved in rehabilitation and management are considered.
