Baltschiederbach flood protection project

The Volken Group is expanding the existing protective dam in Baltschieder. The retention volume of the basin, currently 40'000 cubic metres, will be increased to a total of 130'000 cubic metres. To achieve this, the dam wall will be raised, the channel widened and the culvert at the cantonal road significantly enlarged. Climbing formwork will be used to raise the dam. The material for the backfilling of the dam was prepared directly on site. The expansion of the dam and the widening of the channel protect the population of Baltschieder from floods and floating material.
