Horst aan de Maas - Limburg - The Netherlands
Cycling route 1308139
Provided by: WML
A large part of this nature reserve south of Leunen is used as a water extraction area. This peat area was created by the stagnation of groundwater and rainwater drainage. The excavation of peat has created open puddles.
This source is an important water supplier for Venray and the surrounding area. The groundwater is about 60 meters deep. The pumped water is purified on site and then goes to nearly 40,000 Limburgers, in Venray and part of Horst aan de Maas.
Enjoy this route, but be careful with the environment! That means:
