Mountain stream gravel is very often legally and illegally mined and gravel is removed from river beds sometimes on the very large scale which is disastrous for fluvial situation of rivers, for river ecology and river engineering works done for flood protection such as river revetments, bridges and all hydraulic structures. This situation makes a big problem for all river managers. Thus gravel mining of the mountain streams in the Polish Carpathians is the subject of many scientific studies when we observe river problems, but also it has a place in Slovakia. This paper deals with such problems additionally showing examples of such bad practices.
Key words: Mountain stream / Gravel mining / River bed / Carpathians
