Storage fees

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The storage fee is a hydraulic engineering system that was used to guide a watercourse across another body of water. Storage rates are no longer in use today. A well-preserved, historical warehouse can be found on the Franconian Saale near Bad Bocklet . It consists of a closed channel made of sheet steel that crosses the river. When the Saale flooded, the storage fee could be raised using a spindle drive in order to protect the system. With river water, which was branched off by a damming about two kilometers above the Saale, the pastures on both sides of the Saale could be watered via irrigation ditches as required. There are information boards on the building. Another storage fee is the Zirbelnuss Canal Bridge in Augsburg .
