Daylighting Urban Rivers

Many (most?) of our villages, towns and cities were built next to streams, becks, rivers - they needed water and building them there made sense. Yet when we wander around our towns and cities today, we often see no sign of the waterways upon which they once depended. What has happened and how do we restore these vital waterways to our cities?
