paper proposes an innovative plan and its implement strategy of Hemu urban wetland.
The plan takes into consideration its historical background and current status,
its protection significance, strategies, solutions and support conditions. It highlights
the landscape characteristics of rivers and lakes, and restores its historical
flood prevention functions and climate regulation for the city. Especially, this
paper proposes to achieve the restoration of “Mulberry-sided Fish Pond” farming
—an important agricultural heritage created by the ancestors inside the
wetland, which is a unique and creative way to use low land for ecological
agriculture and cycling economy. The proposed wetland sewage treatment schemes would
be of practical importance to improve and enhance the ecological environment
and promote the construction of ecological civilization in the region. The “Two
zones—One block and Three complexes” protection and utilization plan is
reasonable and feasible. It fully presents the functions of the wetland for its
production, living, life forms and ecology, and is characterized by joint
protection of the wetland by original residents and social public. This will
result in active, instead of passive, wetland protection, like turning a “blood
transfusion protection” to “hematopoietic protection”, which reflects the
sustainable development. The paper offers valuable information and strategies
for planning and development of urban wetland.
