This year we are expected by the maximum wave of flooding lately. The geographical arrangement of Moldova promotes this natural disaster, occurring time in two years. The corresponding statement the former senior engineer of the Bendery river port, the expert in the field of a marine sea fleet has made Ion Friptu. "Flooding of 2008 were something like the prevention, but the due attention was not. Flooding of 2010 have followed, and that time the power has made again nothing. In 2012 there will be even more scale flooding. If to consider all event now in Europe, all snowfalls, people should prepare for disaster as soon as snow" will start to thaw, - has noted Ion Friptu.
The engineer underlines, that the flooding reason is also that fact, that the rivers Dnestrs and the Rod are not cleaned. "Before the river cleared by means of sand and clay extraction, it helped to support sufficient depth of a channel that water did not overflow banks. Now the such does not practise, short of small extraction by some economic agents, but it is not enough of it", - has warned Ion Friptu.
For minimisation of consequences of flooding, the expert confirms, the authorities should organise regular expeditions on the rivers Dnestrs and the Rod in which course to spend gaugings of depth of the rivers on all sites, and in the most dangerous places - to strengthen coast. During flooding of 2010 was an error only to put some bags with sand. Silt, sand and clay are necessary for water keeping.
The most serious flooding are expected in the south of the country. Ion Фрипту recommends to make inventory of technics of transportation in settlements, in particular from Унгень on the republic south to prepare for possible evacuation of the population.
Flooding of 2010 have mentioned 13 thousand persons in 85 settlements of Moldova. 3100 persons have been evacuated - 2300 of area Hynchesht and 800 of area Kantemir. Thousand hectares of agricultural grounds, gardens and pastures have suffered. As a result of that flooding 7 dams and about 200 kilometres of a road cloth have been damaged.
