Abstract:

This study presents changes in water conditions in the Lublin agglomeration, especially as regards discharges from the Bystrzyca and other rivers. Areas covered with impermeable materials, such as asphalt and concrete, have caused changes in directions of surface runoff and an intensification of this process, with effects on the discharges of rivers. The regime of flooding is the consequence of natural and anthropogenic conditions. Spring and summer floods in Lublin and at water gauges below the city are mainly caused by surface runoff from the urban area. During periods of snowmelt periods or torrential rain, water flows rapidly through the system of stormwater drainage, and then into the rivers.
