The emerging role of economic analysis in decision support for the operation of offline flood storage reservoirsAn example based on the case ofthe Tiszaroff reservoir - policy briefPublished: 29 of September, 2015

The construction of a series of flood peak reservoirs along the River Tisza was the result of a change in flood defense strategy triggered by the experiences of the Millennium floods and a Hungarian national budget constraint. The Tiszaroff flood detention reservoir was the first large scale off-line flood storage facility along the river and the only one that was in use to mitigate the Tisza flood-wave of 2010.
