Perfect weather and good mood on Saturday 27.08.22 in the Emmerich Ward at the kick-off party for the construction work. State Minister for Environment of Northrhine Westfalia Oliver Krischer, 1st Deputy District Representative Stefan Welberts and the Mayor of Emmerich Peter Hinze together with our CEO Dietrich Cerff shovel hard at the groundbreaking ceremony of the project.
In addition to the VIPs, we were very pleased about the presence of the citizens of Hüthum, local farmers, and the participating companies BCE and Ecosoil. Many other interested people, young and old, could get a first impression of the area and what we are trying to achieve with our measures.
The highly frequented excursion with project manager Klaus Markgraf-Maué was also a wonderful opportunity to take a look at the nature reserve – at the moment still without getting wet feet – something we try to revise with our mesurements. We hope that the construction work will improve the connection between the wetland and the Rhine and keep the area wet for longer.
