Fish-friendly measures at the Greifenstein power plant

During construction of the Greifenstein power plant, the neighbouring wetland was kept from drying out by a system of artificial dams. This "Gießgang" is today a protected area with a wealth of typical species of animals and plants. With a total of four ramps, the Gießgang is barrier-free for fish. This improves the connection from the Greifenstein reservoir area with that of Altenwörth.
