This paper describes changes in flood flows passing the Raba, a mountain gravel-bed river of the temperate zone, subsequent to regulation of its channel. The results of the case study are next confronted with data from other Carpathian rivers. The purpose of the paper is to show and explain the modifying effect of channel regulation upon flood flows, and to discuss implications of the transformation of flood flows for river engineering and environmental planning
