HIGH-WATER CONDITIONS at the Bolska River Basin – Current State

A hydrological study of the high waters in the area of the Bolska River basin has been created. It includes the “actual” peak flows and flood waves with return periods of 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 years for individual Bolska River sections and its tributaries.

For the purpose of hydraulic modelling, input hydrographs up to the confluence of the Bolska and the Konjšica were provided and meteorological and hydrological data of the Slovenian Environment Agency was obtained and analysed in order to allow further processing. Precipitation analysis (peak daily precipitation, peak precipitation with varying durations ranging from 5 minutes to 24 hours) took into account 18 rain-gauging stations, of which 2 were ombrographs.

A hydrological model of the surface runoff was created for individual hinterlands using the HEC-HMS 4.0 program. Flood waves were evaluated with the synthetic unit hydrograph method according to the SCS method. Flood routing was performed according to the Muskingum-Cunge method.

It was assumed that precipitation with a return period of N causes runoff with a return period of N.


About the Project


Expert bases for determining the priorities of the Republic of Slovenia in the field of environment and efficient use of resources and identification of the themes that are most suitable for co-financing from the LIFE program

In the framework of the project task, we prepared guidelines on the thematic priorities from the Multi-annual LIFE work program for the period 2014–2017 in the priority area Environment and efficient use of resources, and Environmental management and information for Lot 1: water, including the marine environment. The thematic priorities...

Remote sensing of large river hydromorphological characteristics and impact assessment on biotic communities

The project’s aim is to identify and compare impacts of different stressors (hydromorphological alterations, pollution, land use), acting on different spatial scales (reach, segment, catchment), on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish communities in Slovenian large rivers, as well as to analyse the comparability between field survey and remote sensing based hydromorphological...
