About natural values and important environmental problems in Röszke

Röszke and its neighborhood is a typically agricultural landscape with some really valuable locally and regional protected areas, planted forests, trees, with one backwater of the Tisza, cultivated grounds and farms. The surface of the settlement is almost plain, but small sand-hills and deflation hollows from northwest to southeast are determining.
The outer area of Röszke is 3363 hectars. At present 53 hectars, altogehter 7 protected areas can be found there.
The national protected Kancsal-lake, Kisszéksós-lake, and the locally protected Molnár-field, Börcsök-field and Kancsal-field in connection with the Kancsal-lake, the Kóka-field, and the Madarász lake which is between the Natura2000 protected areas are in such deflation hollows. After the regulation of River Tisza, by cutting this part of the river, the Gyálai Holt-Tisza came to birth. It is worth to mention, that in some deflation hollows limestone layers can be seen on the surfice (about 20-60 cm deep). There was only a few precipitation in the last years, and it disappears immediately due to the channels made from the 1960s. The natural values of Röszke were not examined in the last few decades. They did not notice these, and we try to compensate this by researches. By the surveys of our organisation this situation has significantly changed nowadays.
