Based on the data of route inspection and video surveillance of the mudslides of the river Gerkhozhan-Su have been determined the features of the mudslides dynamics in the section of the mudflow tray. Areas of temporary mud accumulation were revealed, over which waves of mudflow periodically passed. Streams rushed through the tray at a speed of 9-12 m/s. The protective role of the mudflow tray and the need for its timely clearing of the mudflow deposits have been highlighted to ensure the anti-flood safety of the city of Tyrnyauz.
