So that the Baltschiederbach does not get out of hand: Flood protection

In order to protect the residents of Baltschieder from future storms and water masses, the existing dam of the Baltschiederbach is being raised. At the moment, the Volken Group is working on the middle dam. A formwork is being built for the fillet in the lower part of the large dam. It is designed in such a way that in the event of an overflow of the protective dam, the water can flow in the desired direction. This special formwork is the work of a cooperative venture with the Schnidrig carpentry shop in Visp. If everything goes according to plan, the protective dam will be ready in the fall of 2023.
