The aim of this research was to study the possibilities of successfully rewetting an area of the Przekowsko-Prze- clawskie Wetlands, situated in South-west Poland. Modeling of groundwater level dynamics, using the ground- water model Modflow, proved that the inundation of the investigated area was possible in spring and in summer of a wet and an average year through raising water levels in the existing channels. In a dry year the inundation was not possible even though the water levels in channels were raised to the maximum level and the ground- water levels desired for wet meadows were not reached.
