We are also building for the future: the embankment at Embd

Natural forces lurk everywhere, including in Valais. The hazard map “Stone and Block Strike '' for the Embder region of Grossstei-Rormatta has recently been revised. It turned out that many people in this area, which is populated all year round, live in the red danger zone. In order to ensure the continued protection of life and limb, the municipality has drawn up a corresponding construction project. Until the end of October 2022, the specialists of the Volken Group will implement it in the tightest of spaces. In addition to a 55 metre long and 3 metre high protective dam, they are also building a diversion of the Rormatte drinking and wastewater pipes including a shaft with a pressure reducing valve. They also widen the cyclopean masonry for a new turning point, create additional parking spaces and widen the curve in the area of the existing hiking trail.
We would like to thank the community of Embd for the nice order and do our best to ensure that future generations can also feel completely safe.
