ABSTRACT
Dry polders were observed in the Silesian village Bolatice. Integrated fully functional system of flood protection is implemented around the village. Runoffs from the watersheds of tanks were calculated with disign precipitation in scope of retention of water in the agricultural landscape. Average annual values of loss of soil were calculated on the selected slopes of polders for evaluating the intensity of water erosion. Model areas, for example meadows or fields with diverse crop cultivation, were used in this work. At the end the functions of dry polders are evaluated.
