Abstract Most Dutch lowland streams experience increased discharge fluctuations, both peaks and droughts, as a result of increasing drained and paved areas. Large discharge fluctuations result in changes in stream morphology and macroinvertebrate communities. Measures to retain runoff water during wet periods can reduce discharge fluctuations and restore both morphology and biodiversity. Retention of water runoff proved to be an effective technique to reduce discharge fluctuations and improve the hydromorphological and ecological quality of this lowland stream
