ABSTRACT

In the present paper, we present a part of the results of the questionnaire survey, which took place in the municipalities of 93 municipalities in the Presov region. The questionnaire contained 27 questions which, in addition to formal information on the municipality are focused on the occurrence and periodicity of floods, the time axis of the floods, the current state of preparedness of municipalities for floods, as well as the improvement/ worsening of the situation in the case of applied flood protection measures. The questionnaire survey was intended to help municipalities and to deepen knowledge level in the area of flood management in municipalities. Many of them have expressed interest in the feedback - the results of the questionnaire survey to be sent to them. Although the number of the filled questionnaires was quite small - 126 out of 662 distributed questionnaires - the completed ones are important for improving flood management in the given area. Based on the results obtained and the evaluation, they can make a significant contribution to increasing flood protection, especially in areas affected by this phenomenon. It should be emphasized that reducing the risk of floods increases the safety of people in the area under consideration.
