Drinking water is running out in steinfeld
Actually, the households in the stadelhofen district of steinfeld have no reason to be dissatisfied with their water supply. "The quality is very good, we have never had any problems so far", emphasizes mayor ludwig gohl. Since its own deep well was drilled in the 1960s, it has been supplying people with the best drinking water. Previously, there were domestic wells and, of course, the wiesent spring. But now the local network is becoming weaker and weaker – pipe bursts are repeatedly causing the precious water to become scarce.
Water keeper martin barth therefore checks the high reservoir of the plant every day. He can tell from the glass blocks that have been grouted into the building what the supply situation is like. "When brewing takes place, consumption is much higher and the water level is much lower. If there is no brewing and the level drops, it is an alarm signal", says the experienced expert. Because then the probability is high that a leak has occurred somewhere in the local network. And then the water becomes scarce.
