The article presents the impact of intensive coal mining on the landscape of two small agricultural catchments. The subsiding of the ground has altered the course of watersheds and caused development of numerous non-drainage basins with large water reservoirs. The landscape has acquired anthropogenic character with dominating mining waste dump (53 million tons and 15.2% of the catchment area), 31 water reservoirs (1.6 million m3 in capacity), high railway embankments and mineshafts. The area of arable land has decreased from 83% to 48.2%. - (BJ)
