In order lo confirm such hypotesis causes and consequences of a flood occurred al the Rambla de Chiva ha ve been analysed. The first pan of the article studies the consequences of such phenomenon on the rambla by means of the sedimentology. From this study it can be concluded that floods are a normal phenomenon for river action. The second part is centered in human intervention on the Rambla, which is shown to have had catastrophic effects on it.
