Stadtwerke build a precautionary mobile high-performance pump

Precaution for high Isarpegels

Press release from May 21, 2019

On Tuesday morning, 21.05.2019, Stadtwerke Landshut preemptively set up a mobile high-performance pump on Troppauer Straße. Because the Water Management Office warns of floods in built-up areas and the Isar in the area of Landshut is expected to reach level three in the night of Wednesday and an increase in groundwater level and further rains are expected, the public utilities have built the pump precautionary.

At the bridge on the Konrad-Adenauer-Straße is the outlet of a drainage channel of the Breslauer road. From this, mechanically purified water is discharged into the river Isar during heavy rainfall events in order to relieve the reservoir channel. However, the Isar presses against the outlet flap at high tide, so that the free flow of the mechanically purified water is severely limited.

The pump helps draw in some of the water from the drainage channel at a depth of 3.50 meters and pump it via four pressure pipes directly next to the outlet construction in the Isar - 300 liters per second creates the pump in addition to the regular discharge of the channel.
