Today, with frequency and severity of extreme weather, flood management became in the world a major concern for governments. The engendered problems are relative to goods and persons safety. Their considerations require a predictive management involving storage and draw-off strategy with several flood areas in order to limit water heights to the downstream of streams. A good flood management requires a control not only of storage to avoid downstream problems but also of water release to protect the fertility of flood expansion areas which are most often based on growing areas. In the literature, numerous described works were done on flows modeling and management. The work presented in this paper, is interested in the quantitative management by means of floods expansion areas placed along the river and for which we have their location as well as their sizing. The performances of management depend on moment and on height of gates opening which influence on wave mitigation. The proposed management method is based on a dynamic mechanism from which the water volumes to be stored or draw-off in time are calculated.
