Important rivers are Bodrog and its tributaries Ondava, Laborec, Latorica, Uh, and Topľa. A system of protective dikes and drainage canals has been built, because the Bodrog tributaries had often caused floods. Subterranean water supplies can be found here. Cold sulphur and hydrogen acidulous waters are used at the Sobrance health resort. Many meadows can be found in the flat.
Arable land prevails in the Latorica Flat, where the Latorica Nature Park is also situated. Meadows, swamps and swamp forests are protected habitats (Zatínske močiare, Veľké jazero) within nature preserves (Latorický luh I and II, Zemplínska jelšina). Rare water and swamp flora and fauna is also preserved in the Tajba reserve.
