Ground-breaking ceremony for new flood protection in Windorf

On 10 July 2014, residents, representatives of the local authorities, construction specialists and politicians – including the Bavarian Environment Minister Marcel Huber – all took part in the ground-breaking ceremony for the second phase of construction for the new flood protection measures. When construction work started on 28 July 2014, mayor Franz Langer welcomed this important step towards improving protection against the Perlbach flooding. During the first phase of construction, a barrier to protect the market town had already been erected along the banks of the Danube.

The water board in Deggendorf awarded the contract for the second phase to Josef Rädlinger Bauunternehmen GmbH. In order to be able to implement the protection measures in the first place, the Windorf borough purchased eight houses within the building area, most of which have now been demolished. The main work involves diverting the Perlbach to the left, including widening and natural restructuring of the bank areas. A protective wall 250 metres long and between 0.75 and 1.25 metres high will be built along the right bank and supplemented by mobile stop-log systems and a flood gate. A green terraced area will be created on the left bank, and the two existing pedestrian bridges over the stream will be moved upstream. One of the bridges is planned wide enough to be available as an alternative route for rescue and emergency vehicles in the event of a flood. A pump station for draining and gate valves with modern control, plant and pumping technology will guarantee additional safety.

The result for the residents will not only be effective flood protection but an attractive local recreation area. The building work is to be completed by June 2015.
