Preliminary flood risk assessment – I planning cycle (2011)
Preliminary flood risk assessment in the I planning cycle was developed within the project “IT System of the Country’s Protection against extreme hazards” (ISOK), financed from the European Regional Development Fund within the Operational Programme Innovative Economy. The project was carried out by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW-PIB) in consortium with the National Water Management Authority (KZGW), the Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography (GUGiK), the Government Centre for Security (RCB) and the National Institute of Telecommunications.
The preliminary flood risk assessment was made prepared by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management PIB – the Centres of Flood Modelling in Gdynia, Cracow, Poznań and Wrocław in consultation with the National Water Management Authority.
Within the PFRA significant past floods have been identified, as well as floods that can occur in the future (so called probable floods), which provide basis to select identify areas at the risk of flooding.
Feedback on the preliminary flood risk assessment was sent back by 21 bodies. According to the article 88c, par.4, of the Water Law Act, the bodies that provided their opinions were notified on how their comments were processed. Among received opinions there were no remarks on preliminary coastal flood risk assessment, including sea inland waters, which would require arrangements with the minister appropriate for maritime economy, according the article 88c, par. 5, of the Water Law Act.
