ABSTRACT. – Historical Flood of 2005 in Tarcău Catchment. During the flood of 12 – 15 July the water level in the lower sector of the valley exceeded the one estimated for a 100‐year flood, and the maximum discharge was almost twice larger than the previous peak. This extreme event generated the largest damage in Tarcău catchment, in total value of over 21,000,000 lei. The main affected element was the transport infrastructure. It also determined a change in flood perception of the local authorities, leading to the creation of a Voluntary Service for Emergency Situations the same year and investments in flood proofing.
Keywords: historical flood, peak discharge, flooded area, damage, transport infrastructure.
