Project Description

Flood protection on the canal – why flooding cannot occur on the industrial canal

At the end of the 1980s, after the demolition of the old Rhine wall, a new, brick embankment was built along the Rhine, and behind it, the dyke for the St. Alban-Rheinweg was raised. This eliminated the danger of flooding in the St. Alban Valley. Furthermore, the St. Alban Valley was also given the appearance we are familiar with today, with its high, paved embankment instead of the old Rhine wall.
