This article presents ice monitoring and intervention on the rivers in Romania in January-February, 2017. After a long period in January with very low temperatures, there were positive temperatures with significant rainfall in the first decade, causing ice flows followed by ice jams and floods. In order to reduce the damage done by overflowing rivers ”Romanian Waters” National Administration employees from Alba, Bistrița-Năsăud, Brașov, Covasna, Harghita, Maramureș, Mureș and Suceava counties participated in the operation.
