Abstract (in english)
   In the paper two basic topics connected with geotechnical hazards are not only discussed but it is also shown how they are treated at the CTU Prague. the first one is connected with earth and rockfill dams. To show the major sources of risk of the dam failure the individual questions as a deformability, cracks and internal erosion are discussed with the help of event tree - logical diagram. The similar approach is used for the definition of the risk of the thousands small pond earth dams, which were constructed some centuries ago. Education pronciples in environmental geotechnics are also shown for problems connected with burdens - (old contaminated sites) - what all steps have to be made during the decision making process
