La crue du Rhin de mai-juin 1999
The Rhine flood of May-June 1999
Ingénieur des Ponts et Chaussées, chargé de l'Arrondissement Fonctionnel du Service de la Navigation de Strasbourg
The recent Rhine flood (May 12th-first days of June 1999) was essentially due to important quantities of winter snow. The stream flows and the duration were really exceptional. The dikes in the upper part of the Rhine (which is trained on almost all the french-german part) and the existant impounding water means permitted to limit the consequences. The present paper describes the flood management.
