The process of silt stagnation is present in all bodies of water that are situated in front of
hydroelectric power plants, Lake Zbilje being no exception. Due to the copious amounts of silt
deposits in Lake Zbilje, a remediation of silt has already been carried out in 1995 and 1997.
Now it seems another remediation of silt deposits will be needed as silt has once again
accumulated in the lake. The effects of silt in Lake Zbilje and their consequences will be
presented in the thesis. In addition to that, the thesis will also present established practices of
silt remediation and the handling of silt once drained. Based on these practices, guidelines on
how to best preform the remediation of silt in Lake Zbilje were made, so it may be used when
the time calls for it. The findings of this Thesis show that the best course of action would be to
relocate the silt deposits that were drained in the original remediation from the original depot,
that is the area of the Zbije Dobrava, to the area of gravel pits near the lake, while the newly
drained silt deposits, drained from the lake under the village where the majority of the of silt is
blocked off, would deposit itself on the area of the original depot.
