What is it about?

This study investigates the response of the streamflow to an extremely hot and dry summer 2015 in the urbanized catchment of the Utrata River in central Poland. The objectives were to: reveal changes in the flow regime, assess anomalies in summer river flows, estimate the natural and wastewater effluent contribution and provide an ecological context for the in-stream conditions.

Why is it important?

Our findings show that the wastewater effluent contribution was almost 100% to the streamflow during extreme, 2015 drought.


Further investigations concern the contribution of wastewater in the past.
