This article describes the application of a new computing technology – computing grids – to simulation and decision support during the on-line control of retention reservoirs during flood period. The general idea of computing grids, their main characteristics and capabilities are briefly discussed. The practical ex-ample, i.e., hierarchical control structure for flood operation in the Vistula river basin system is presented. The main goal of the paper is to show the wide appli-cability of grids to support research and management of the large-scale environ-mental systems.
