26.06.2018 | Flood Protection Scheme Nominated for Bavarian State Prize Includes EDR Participation

Following frequent flooding in recent years, the municipalities on the Schmutter and Neufnach rivers developed a flood protection scheme. One of their first measures was the construction of a flood water retention basin at Langenneufnach. EDR's Hydraulic Engineering Department undertook the design work for the retention basin and supervised its construction.

The overall project was crowned winner of the Countryside and Village Development Competition 2018.  Because of its outstanding contribution to the water management of Langenneufnach, Fischach and Mickhausen, this project has now been nominated for the 2018 Bavarian State Prize.
