We made a reaction on the paper evaluating local channel widening function in the Morávka River lower reach. Local channel widening was constructed for undesirable bed degradation of the Morávka River at downstream reach in 10.7 river km. We answered to the problematic questions and conclusions of this paper. As compared with non-function of the anti-erosive construction with support of data coming out from monitoring of Department of Physical Geography and Geoecology, Faculty of Science, University of Ostrava.
