    humans use water and the way a society functions. (Kley & Reijerkerk) (Klaver, “Placing Water and Culture”, 2012) In modern times it is evident that there has been a shift from appreciation and deep respect to a desire to control the power which water possesses. The building of dams and the straightening of naturally meandering rivers is evidence of the human need to control and harness rather than be influenced by the nature that surrounds us. This need to control has caused problems around the world- causing pieces of the bridge between water and the cultures that so heavily rely on it to chip away. The building of dams and the changing of rivers affects thousands of people who rely on the river for their livelihood. For example, the Meander River in Turkey has been the source of life giving water to people living on its banks for thousands of years.

This complete lack of regard for nature and culture destroyed thousands of lives and led to the displacement of thousands who had relied on this once pristine and powerful body of water. (Vermeyecegiz, 2011) From this point that we have reached, one can only hope that restoration for the world as a whole is on the horizon. It is becoming unnervingly apparent that our world is hurdling towards a water crisis with…

This is due to the combination of erosion of the soft bank of the river and sediment deposition on the opposite bank (Bowlick et al. 124).
