Abstract: Shortly after putting into operation of the Gabcikovo Danube Project, the navigation locks began to leak. It was necessary to complete and modernise the monitoring system so that this would enable a more precise location of the leaking areas and also monitoring of efficiency of the performed rehabilitation activities. Additional sealing was done in several stages. Joints were sealed with polyurethane resins and the degraded gravel bedrock was sealed with traditional grouting.
