Abstract

The river Vere is a typical mountain river with its gorge of more than 40 km length, range of heights up to 1500 m. This river is considered to be one of the most dangerous rivers in the east Georgia due to its frequent catastrophic overflows. One of the aims of this paper was to estimate the approximate volume of the temporary water reservoir, formed between the Tamarashvili Highway and Gabashvili Street during the catastrophic flood in the Vere River Valley on June 15, 2015. The paper estimates that the temporary water reservoir has a strategic load to manage the catastrophic flood and its consequences, considering the maximum water consumption of the tunnel leading from Svanidze Street and the maximum water permeability of the second tunnel and also taking into account the water flowing from the slopes of temporary water reservoir.
