More capacity in an emergency: reservoir expansion

To ensure that the community of Bettmeralp is not left without water in the event of drought or fire, the Volken Group is helping to enlarge the existing reservoir. In cooperation with the companies Rudaz + Partner, Imwinkelried & Söhne AG, Metallbau Heinzen Gmbh and Gombau AG, the new "Chüeställi" reservoir will be built by next November with a capacity of 912 m3, 100 to 150 m3 of which can be used as a fire-fighting water reserve. The new basin is about 18 m higher than the existing one and thus builds up sufficient pressure to guarantee the water supply.
