Prolonged rainfall or snowmelt after the winter repeatedly cause the levels of our rivers to rise and the waters to overflow their banks. In many places, this results in high damage. The Water Management Office has already planned and implemented numerous countermeasures. Based on plannable requirements, dikes and dams have been strengthened and flood protection facilities have been built.

In addition, increasingly frequent heavy rainfall events in the urban area cause flooding of streets and fill basements or underground garages.

Find out in which way you can prepare yourself and how to behave properly in case of floods.
