The Simonsbachtal flood retention basin (also Simonsbachspeicher , Simonsbach reservoir ) near Donzdorf and Unterweckerstell is one of three reservoirs in the Göppingen district , Baden-Württemberg . The Fils water board completed it in May 1983. The Simonsbach, which flows behind the basin over the Seizenbach in Donzdorf into the Lauter , is dammed . The flood retention basin is normally only partially dammed; the largest part of the basin is reserved for flood protection .
The small reservoir is a natural paradise where many birds live. There are action days for the Simonsbach Reservoir Adventure .
