This paper presents results of a hydraulic study which has been undertaken in order to investigate the effects of canalization of the lower Drina river on the flood flow regime. Two possible flood control schemes have been analysed by mathematical modelling, including partial pre-emptying of reservoirs, and free or controlled discharge of excess water into the floodplains. The results of calculation are presented for the flood wave of return period 1000 years, illustrating the specific aspects
