This study presents results of monitoring torrent-control hydrotechnical structures within the Cârcinov River catchment, which revealed the nature and frequency of events affecting the functioning of the structures. Among structure damages, the most common were: breakages (45), undermining of the body (16) and erosive damages (15). In the group of structure dysfunctionalities, the most common were: unsupervised installation of forest vegetation (48), clogging of the apron (19) and the deepening of the valley downstream the structure (16).
