The hydromorphological restoration of rivers or the difficult articulation of environmental and territorial references

Abstract : Ambitious river restoration projects involve environmental issues together with local practices and territorial functions and identity. These projects broaden the usual scope of decisions and social sphere and require specific resources and rationale for action. In order to understand these particularities, we gathered a group of about ten river technicians, who are concerned with the enhancement of ambitious restoration projects. The reflexive work performed by this group showed a predominance of environmentalist rationale as the foundation of river restoration. The participative and territorial dimensions of the project were regarded as the main conditions of its success. However, these dimensions only had an interstitial place in strategies of action, indicating a limited reflexivity.
