The dam keepers of the Upper Jagst Water Association

Customer report: The hosts of the Ellwanger Seenplatte

Hardly imaginable today, there were regularly devastating storms in the area of the upper Jagst in Baden-Württemberg in Germany until the 1950s. Every year, the river burst its banks several times and caused great damage. With the start of the construction of a century-long project in 1956, the turning point came and by 1982 a total of 15 storage and retention basins as well as embankments had been built, which today largely protect the area from flooding. The water board of the Upper Jagst is responsible for the maintenance of the facilities. An important helper in the daily work of the association's dam keepers is a Schlegel ride-on mower AS 1040 YAK 4WD.
