Evidence is presented that regulation works on the Vistula channel have introduced very significant and rapid changes in the magnitude of river load transportation and sedimentation. It is acknowledged that human interference represents the most significant cause of change in the Vistula catchment within historical times. The alluviation of the Vistula valley floodplain as described here, which was initiated about 150 years ago, may be compared with the equally rapid changes of load transportation by and sedimentation rates of others rivers influenced by intensive urbanization
