improvements to the local representative at the headwaters of the Ursel Bach to the North of the city limits are of the view that necessary: There, the stream gets purified water from the sewage treatment plant of white churches, but, as with many wastewater treatment plants the fourth cleaning missing there level. You could stalls the sewage of drug residues, residues of plant protection products, contamination with micro-particles, but also of dangerous germs free.
No cleaning of the water
The theme is also the local representative of Nieder-Eschbach is on. There, the Eschbach flows five kilometers from the city limits to West, where it also flows into the Nidda. After a near-natural redesign of the brook meanders run. The shores are lined with trees, and there is Still and shallow water zones. The picture is deceptive, however: Even if the water looks clear, the Eschbach as charged. Multi-resistant proven duck pathogens were. Local representative to demand so vehemently to the wastewater treatment plant Bad Homburg, which releases water to the North of Nieder-Eschbach in the Creek, with a fourth purification step to reduce the microbial load. The city has so far hired only money for planning in the budget.
the hope of The local representative, that the program "Wild streams" could be further incentives, seems to be in vain: The focus is on structural changes such as the creation of near-natural waters and the shore forms, provides project Manager Patrick Steinmetz of the Hessian society (DLG) clearly. The Board is asked to plan the expected Hesse to approximately 3000 individual projects to the streams and to organize. For the municipalities this was an important administrative assistance, says Steinmetz. If possible by 2027, the Restoration measures should be implemented. Individual projects could be funded in the amount of 75 to 95 percent. The expensive Expansion of wastewater treatment plants was not provided for in the program. The Ministry for the environment confirms this is called but it is a major concern. So going to be promoted in the framework of the Hessian trace substance strategy, the better treatment of the wastewater. In the context of the Hessian Rieds around selected municipal be equipped sewage treatment plants, with a fourth purification stage, in order to eliminate trace substances.
Every single step is important
The FEDERAL government of Hesse provides for the efforts to the quality of the surface waters is critical, but also understanding. In the search for the sources of multi-resistant pathogens are not sewage treatment plants, but also consider hospitals, and agriculture, says conservation officer Thomas Norgall. He laments "the lack of sentencing for the improvement of water quality". This was a complex project, where each individual step count: the trace substance strategy in the country, as well as the promotion for "Wild rivers". If the steps have gone, this is also a success, especially since the Expansion of sewage treatment plants takes years.
the local representative sounds this is still not consistent. In the case of Eschbach it would mean: The Bach is designed close to nature, the water, however, remains questionable. The Council has demanded, therefore, to warn on the shore in front of the false Creek idyll.Updated Date: 26 July 2020, 01:19
