Abstract

In 1997 and 2010, two great floods occurred in the area of Poland. In the year 2015, the area of Poland was affected by extreme temperature. In the time of global warming, the low water retention should play the significant role. Thus, the aim of this article is to verify the efficiency of the low water retention in Poland. The methodology consists of two parts: data collection and data analysis. The data were collected from two databases: the EM-DAT and the BDL-GUS. After the analysis, conclusions were drawn. The hypothesis of the article was verified negatively: the efficiency of the low water retention in Poland did not better after the great flood in the year 2010. The average cost of 1 m3 capacity in the period 2003–2009 exceeded US$10 and in the period 2010–2014—US$21. In the case of man-made reservoirs, fish ponds and staging lakes, the situation is similar—the average costs increased.
