Abstract

The most catastrophic floods on the territory of the Republic of Moldova are formed on its largest river: the Dniester River. Main measures implemented for flood protection are reservoirs and levees which were built in the middle of the last century. This paper contains first tentative of reevaluation of protection capacity of these measures basing on analysis of new database and modern methods and techniques. Flood hydrographs of different probabilities were calculated basing on new Standards of the Republic of Moldova. HEC-RAS model (USA) was implemented to simulate flood wave of different probabilities from Dubasari Reservoir to Slobazia Village and to evaluate flooded areas, water velocities and depths.
