Assessment of the Technical Condition of Protective Dams on the Reservoirs and Rivers of Ukraine
The problem of protecting territories from the harmful effects of water is very relevant for Ukraine, since 27% of its territory is more or less exposed to flooding. One of the most representative flood protection methods in Ukraine is the construction of flood-control dams. For today, the total length of protective dams in Ukraine is more than 4.0 thousand kilometers. In the future, the length of the dams may increase up to 6.0 thousand kilometers. In accordance with the normative building standards in force in Ukraine VBN V. 2.4-33-2.3-02-2008, the main purpose of the protective dams is to protect the territory and facilities against high floods. These standards when designing and constructing of protective dams require drainage excavation.
