With the storage, we prevent flooding in the area by absorbing it in times of heavy rainfall. Water is retained in the water sector, so that it is available to farmers in the event of drought. The water storage is arranged in such a way that flowery grassland develops well and that meadow birds and the “European weatherfish” (protected species of fish) feel at home. The bicycle and hiking trails and the lookout tower along the water storage and holding facilities were also completed at the end of 2018.
