The article examines suspended sediment transport in Mže, Radbuza, and Úhlava Rivers over the period 1989-95. Data on suspended sediments was collected at five observing sites. The research has been carried out in collaboration with Czech Hydrometeorological Institute, Plzeň. Apart from the suspended load characteristics also the seasonal variation of suspended sediments, siltation of Hracholusky and České Údolí Lakes, and the share of inorganic material in suspended sediments have been examined.
