Arda Cascade Reservoirs Overflow in South Bulgaria


All the rivers in the Eastern Rhodopi mountains in South Bulgaria currently have a critically high water level after heavy rains in the region.

Some of the reservoirs in the River ‘Arda’ cascade are currently overflowing, with the situation at the ‘Studen Kladenets’ reservoir the most critical, with an inflow rate of 1 100 cubic meters of water per second.

3 of the 9 emptying valves have been opened to reduce the amount of incoming water in to the local hydro facility at the Studen Kladenets dam . The ‘Ivaylovgrad’ reservoir has also been overflowing for 3 days.

Heavy rain is expected again on Tuesday night which will increase the serious flooding possibility even further. In recent days buildings in the Southern city of Kardzhali have had their basements flooded and many people have complained of sanitation problems.

Rivers, dams in Bulgaria remain dangerously full

Civil Protection units worked overnight and prevented the Vaya dam in Bourgas from bursting, Bulgarian media reported on February 18 2010. The team "
worked tirelessly"
to buttress and reinforce the banks of the dam, where the threat of a breach was at its worst.

Because of the ongoing work, the Bourgas-Sozopol road section had been shut off for traffic, reports said.

According to experts on the ground, the situation remains "
stable"
. The water levels continue to be alarmingly high in places but the water level was not increasing, Dnevnik said.

However, a heat wave was expected to descend on Bulgaria on February 18 that would last for several days. Temperatures have been rising since February 16, but were expected to hit as high has 20C in places on February 18, with the average for the country at about 12-14C.

Light rain was expected throughout Bulgaria. Even in the mountains, precipitation would take the form of rain as high up as 2200m.

"
The situation in Elhovo remains critical. Intense snow-melting process in the mountains will cause rivers to overflow again, as dams will have to be vented once more,"
the Bulgarian meteorological service was quoted as saying.
