Update to the map of flood risk and flood hazard

19 September 2018 r.

On September 19, 2018, updated flood risk and flood hazard maps were presented to the public in the Public Information Bulletin of the Ministry of Maritime and Inland Shipping, and are available at Hydroportal in PDF at: http://mapy.isok.gov.pl.

Based on art. 171 paragraph 9 of the Act of 20 July 2017 – Water Law (Journal of Laws of 2017, item 1566), flood risk and flood hazard maps for selected river sections were updated. According to the above article, flood risk and flood hazard maps can be reviewed and, if necessary, updated more often than once every six years, however, in the case of such updates, it is necessary to repeat it in accordance with the principle expressed in paragraph 8, i.e. on the dates resulting from the Flood Directive.

Map projects drawn up by the Polish Water Holding Polish Waters and agreed with the relevant governors (in accordance with art. 171, paragraph 1 of the Water Law) have been approved by the Minister of Maritime and Inland Navigation.

The update applies to selected river sections, where an urgent need to update was identified at the stage of consulting flood risk management plans (PZRP) in 2015, due to, among others, implemented investment projects or significant changes in the terrain. The list of updated river sections is below:

Other flood risk and flood hazard maps, developed in the 1st planning cycle, will be updated by 22 December 2019, which results from the Flood Directive.

Updated maps have been developed within the project “Review and update of flood hazard and flood risk maps” financed by the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020.

Flood risk and flood hazard maps have been created in accordance with the structure and scope of map development in the 1st planning cycle, described in the Report on the implementation of flood hazard and flood risk maps (2015). Updated flood risk and flood hazard maps are in accordance with the current Regulation of the Minister of the Environment, Minister of Transportation, Construction and Maritime Affairs, Minister of Administration and Digitization, Minister of Internal Affairs of 21 December 2012 on the development of flood risk and flood hazard maps.

The description of the methodology and scope of the update are included in the “Report on the preparation of flood risk and flood hazard maps– part I (2018)”.
