daylighting
 n.— «Yet until a decade ago the river was buried beneath a busy boulevard filled with cars and trucks. Looking for a way to beautify and enliven their city center, citizens of Aarhus decided to liberate the river from the culverts where it had flowed for many years. This process, known as “daylighting,” is a growing trend, which offers inspiration that we can do more than prevent future problems in our hometowns—we can repair damage done in the past.» —“Take Me to the River” by Jay Walljasper National Geographic: The Ecopolitan Feb. 4, 2008.
